Snowy greetings - Catch the bug - Holiday Critters Chaos Day 1

Saturday December 14, 2019

Well it's DAY 1 of our Holiday Critters Chaos
 over at Catch the bug

It's a week long fun filled themes so 
I hope you have time to play along. 


Our first theme is Holiday critter and SNOW..  I am using the image called Winter penguin trio which can be found in the Bugaboo store. I started by using a stencil and texture paste to create the falling snow background. I set it aside to dry. I then used copics and colored the image. I fussy cut the image out. I took some more of the texture paste and added to the ground to go along with the falling snow. I stamped the Paper trey ink and Simon says sentiments and heat embossed. I used a banner die. I added everything with foam tape.

This is my Blue Christmas card using the image called Snowflake Penguin. I started by masking off my image and using Ranger ink and creating the background around him. I then colored the image with copics. I added some embossing powder to the snowflakes and then added a Pretty pink posh jewel to the centers. I stamped the sentiment from Taylored Expressions and punched out with a Stampin up punch and using some designer paper also punched the backing to the sentiment. I added the image to a piece of card stock then added to the pretty designer paper.
