     Happy Bellarific Friday!  Last weeks challenge was this CAS sketch.  I used the adorable Penguideer on my card.  I used a snowflake embossing folder and then smooshed some Versamark on it.  My intention was to just sparkle up the raised areas but I smooshed a bit too hard.  I still like the look though.

Copics Used:
penguin N1, N3, N5, N7, YR21, YR24
antlers E57
scarf YG95, R37, R39

     Next weeks challenge is this cool color inspiration.

     To play along just use a Stamping Bella image (make sure you use something that's currently in the store stock) and the theme requirements.  Get your project photographed and emailed to Em at (emily at stampingbella dot com) with Bellarific Friday challenge and the date of the challenge in the subject line by Thursday evening.  Em offers a $25.00 Bella Bucks prize to one lucky winner every month.
     You can find all the wonderful DT creations as well as those who participated in the sketch challenge over at Blogabella.
     Be blessed!

Crikey, mate....he's a beaut!!! Here we see the incredibly rare breed of Spheniscidae-Rangifer in its natural habitat. I don't wanna startle the little fella as it appears he's undoubtedly on his Christmas pilgrimage. If I'm incredibly quiet, I'll try and shadow this bloke in hopes we see him reunite with his clan. It's said that in groups of three or more, their melodic caroling can be heard for miles.
Tune in next week, where I'll crawl inside a tiger's mouth and tickle its stomach!

LOOOOOVE your card!!!!

Popping in to say hi - so sorry I haven't been around much lately. Work has certainly got in the way of my hobby this term! Love your wee penguin with his antler head-gear and the autumn colours in the inspiration pic are just beautiful. Hugs xxx

Oh my.....awesome glittery snowflake background. Cute little penguin with his antlers and scarf. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Geri N

Audrey Pettit said...

Oh, I think the background is really cool! I was totally staring at it, trying to figure out what you had done. It's got a bit of a stone look, like marble..... very eye catching and unique. And of course that little penguin is absolutely adorable, and colored beautifully! Love this!
