Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful!

This weeks challenge at Gingersnap Creations GC83 is Polar Animals!  Well I was all excited, because I knew I had just the perfect Penguin stamps - NOT!  Apparently that was all in my imagination, because I looked at least three times and not a one!  Some how I did not think the GC DT would fall for a black and white owl!!  So my third project as a visiting artist is my very first attempt using graphics off the computer.  We are also entering this with the Artistic Stamper's Christmas challenge.


This adorable Penguin image is from Karen at The Graphics Fairy.  Thank you Karen!!!  I printed a second image, because I knew I would cut out the Penguin and put him on pop dots for added dimension.  I did a little icing in all the areas that the large and smaller Penguins stand and this was done with several layers of clear embossing powder and one layer of iridescent ice.  The only coloring I did on this one is the feet and beak!  The sentiment is from I Brake For Stamps.

During this especially busy time of the year, your taking the time to visit and comment is truly appreciated.  Wishing all of you the Happiest of Holidays!

This is lovely! Were your ears burning this morning as I was out with a friend and she mentioned your art, so you see you are being discussed in coffee shops in South East UK!
