Hello again and welcome to my inspiration for our new challenge over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog where we would like to see your creations on the theme of Winter but definitely not Christmas! So it's time to get frosty!
I've taken this opportunity to ink up my newest cute stamp which is the adorable Katzelcraft grumpy penguins.
I've used a white/greyboard postcard as my starting point as these are really fab if you haven't got much crafting time available.
I applied some Paper Artsy Fresco Finish acrylic paint in Lavender and Vintage Lace, using my fingers which is rather messy but gives a soft grungy effect.
I then used the That's Crafty snowflake dinky stencil with the Ranger Emboss-It Dabber to make a pattern around the edges of the painted panel and heat embossed it with Ranger Weathered White Embossing Powder. I added some more embossing round the edges for an extra snowy look.
I stamped the penguins on stamping card with Archival Jet Black ink and added colour to the images with watercolour pencils. I then cut them out and rounded them out with a large embossing tool before adding to the panel with foam tape.
I finished off with a stamped sentiment, adding the exclamation mark with a fine black pen as I was trying for a little sarcasm to go with the general grumpiness!
Hope you can enter and the prize for the randomly drawn winner is a £20 voucher for the online shop.
Have a great day and a lovely weekend and see you next week.
