Today's challenge from Lynda is a sketch! We have some amazing guest designers on the OCC today, the girls have created some great samples, and there's a PRIZE!!...so be sure to check out the OCC Blog.
I used my brand new Penguin Antics set that was just released by Whipper Snapper Designs this week...one of the awesome cling sets designed by Anna Wight.
Check out that penguin on his ice skates....wanna know what he's doing on the inside of the card??...wiping out (like I probably would on ice skates), LOL! You can see a pic of the inside of the card below.
The penguins were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored with Copic markers (numbers are in the recipe below). The hat was stamped in Memento Black onto Cool Caribbean CS, then I stamped the snowflake background stamp from the Penguin Antics set over top of the penguin's hat, cut it out and paper pieced it onto the main image (when stamping the snowflake pattern over the hat, it did cover the penguin as well, but it didn't matter because it was cut out). The Cool Caribbean panel has the same snowflake pattern as the penguin's hat, also stamped in Cool Caribbean ink.
I marked holes for the PTI ribbon with the template from my SU mat pack and then punched the holes with my cropodile. A while back, I saw Taylor made a card with the ribbon threaded this way...you can see her fun card here. The Pacific Point snowflakes were punched with a Martha Stewart punch, and they're secured with sparkly blue brads that I think I got at Michael's. The white panel was embossed through the cuttlebug with the old Snowflake folder.
