Congrats goes to sparkplug17 this week. I chose this cute card to case: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...8876?cat=12967
I started this last night and went to bed at 3:00am, then finished it this morning. I needed to emboss the dress and I couldn't do last night because I had all my embossing stuff in our master bedroom and I didn't want to turn the light on to wake up DH.
I started with red bazzill cs as the base. I layered with Imaginisce dp I got at Archivers. I stamped the penguins with black stazon on GP white cs and colored with SU markers. I used the SU blush pen with a tiny pom pom and sponged the cheeks with it. I didn't have any small red prima flowers so I colored a white flower with my SU red marker and added a mini white pearl for the center. I used my versa mark pen for the dress and embossed with green sparkle ep with my heat gun. I also used a 2 way glue on the boy penguin's and put diamond dust on the yellow parts of the shorts. The main image is raised with 3D squares. I stamped Aloha with black stazon on GP white cs and layered with the red bazzill cs. I added 2 yellow prima flowers with 2 blue rhinestones for the center. They are raised using 3D squares as well. I used my tan SU marker to brush on the sand stamp from Fish Frolics and made like they are dancing on the sand.
Things I changed: DP, colors, embellishments
Thanks for a fun challenge. I'm glad I had matching dp to go along with my cute penguins.
