The Stampendous penguin was found at Archiver’s 1.99 section and all the other images are from Cornish Heritage Farms/CHF.
This tree is great because the areas that don’t stamp are a perfect guide for glitter placement.
-The tree is one image stamped full size at the far left and all the others are a partial image and to give each a little character of it’s own I just drew in some branches. A marker was used for inking up the rubber.
-The mountains are also a partial image stamped twice using a stamp positioner.
-Shading for the snow and mountains and adding color to the ice pond and penguin is done with Prismacolor pencils and Mona Lisa mineral spirits.
-Sky is added with handmade template, sponge and pad ink.
-Glitter is added with Art Glitter designer adhesive and glitter sprinkled on. I have a metal very fine tip that goes on the bottle and it’s great for glitter lines.
-Faux brads are 1/8” punch glued to the card, a drop of designer adhesive added and glittered.
-Snowflake is recycled from a glittered greeting card that I ran through the Cuttlebug.
When I saw this penguin image it reminded me of DawnL's skating penquins card. My card doesn't look like hers but I sorta borrowed the idea as a starting point.
