It's time for another challenge over at Polka Doodles and this week we want to see a bird on your creation. As you've probably noticed I'm in full Christmas mode at the moment and when I spotted this adorable little penguin on the Here Comes Christmas CD I knew I had to find a project to use him/her in. As luck would have it Emma Canning also released some Chrimbo cuties and I thought that Snow Race would fit perfectly on the card I had in mind! The only thing was I couldn't find an Igloo digi, so I thought I'd make my own - I have to say I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. What do you think?
The card base is of course a simple stepper card. I roughly sketched the igloo onto white card and then cut out each individual ice block. To give an icy look to the blocks I edged them with Distress Ink and Stickles before gluing them onto place on the back step of the card. I then tore several strips of white card to create the snow banks and again edged them with DI's and Stickles.
All of the images have been coloured with Promarkers and accents added with Sakura Glitter Pens and a Sakura Glaze Pen (I cannot recommend these pens highly enough). They've then been mounted onto the card using foam pads. The sentiment comes from the Here Comes Christmas CD and has been die cut with my Oval Nesties. To finish I added some fabric snowflakes that I found in the pound store and then glued some blue gemstones into the centres.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend. We've got a friends birthday party to attend, so I have a feeling that I may have sore head come Sunday!
Thanks for stopping by today.
