Snow Globe Penguins

Hi Crafty Friends 

Here is today's card, the penguins from Hobby Art -Poles apart stamp set.. a wonderful set.

 Aren't these penguins so cute...
I started by stamping the image in Watering can Archival ink which I embossed with clear embossing powder. I coloured the image with my promarkers. I have a snow globe mask which I placed over my image and embossed. I then hand cut the snow globe out.I masked off the penguins and created a snowy scene by using two different sizes of polkda dot masks. I inked through them with tumbled glass disagree ink.
For the sentiment I used one of Phil Martins stamps and curved it to fit into the bottom of the snow globe. I heat embossed in clear then coloured over with ink which makes it pop.
For the background I embossed a piece of white card with a snowflake mask then added versamark to the embossed snowflakes which I covered with clear embossing powder. I think you can see the shine in the photos.
I then created a frame from dark blue card.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

    What a delightful card. The penguins are lovely. You must have a steady hand to cut that globe out by hand.
    Moving Along With The Times challenge blog are looking for a couple of new DT members. You'd be a real asset chuck if you're interested? You only need to do one card per month and we're a friendly bunch.
    Best wishes.

  6. Hi Maria
    Just seen your comment. Look how many accolades you've won on your sidebar. You're a very talented gal!
    Have looked for an email address on your profile to pass to Wendy so she can answer anything you need to know. Didn't find one so here's Wendy's email ......... She can answer your questions, but the basics are create one card every 4 weeks and comment on a few entries during the 2 weeks the challenge runs for.
    Hope that you will consider it as your cards are a delight.
    Best wishes.
