Reflective Penquin!

What else can you do on a snowy night, ice skating all by yourself? Reflect about why you can't sleep...oh wait a minute, I'm reflecting my issues on the penquin!



The penquin is printed on acetate and colored with sharpy markers. I added red stickles to the hat and liquid applique, heated very carefully (acetate is allergic to heat!). The white snowflakes are stamped on the inside so they show through the window. The gold and silver metallic cardstock is from the same sheet. I used Staz-On stamp cleaner to remove the gold finish!


I didn't much like it as I was finishing it up, but then my DH said, "I like it, is it going to be our Christmas card this year?" That's pretty much a compliment in this house, or was he just trying to get me motivated? That is the question.  This is for for There's Magic In the Air challenge...go by and grab the cute litle penquin guy for free!

Night all!

YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!! Another card!! LOVE IT (and I'm not just saying that because you're my mom!). Love the flipped image and it looks like it's printed on acetate with snowflakes? However you did it, it's brilliant!! And the contrasts between the holographic paper, red rick rack and blue embossed panel is stunning. Thanks for playing with us at TMITA this week and can't wait to see what you come up next (hint, hint!)
