If You Give A Crafter A Cookie: Bugaboo Penguins

Hello crafty friends!

I hope your week is going well. 
Here in the NW of England we are managing to keep warm and haven't had the snow ... yet. 

Today is the start of a brand new challenge at 
If You Give A Crafter A Cookie.
You can enter your projects until January 25th.

Our sponsor is the wonderful Bugaboo Stamps.

 And here is the image to spark your imagination:

Such beautiful penguin and snowflake cookies.
How will they inspire you?

I was lucky to be given a Bugaboo stamp to work with - it's the Penguin Trio Block and I went along with a similar colour scheme to the photo.

The image  was coloured with Spectrum Noir markers and iridescent glitter applied to the snow caps and flakes. The image was matted on to black card.
The background was made by blending distress inks (Tim Holtz  Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac) onto satin silk art card from Inkilicious. Snowflake clusters were stamped in clear embossing ink to give a watermark effect, then some snowflakes were heat embossed with Snowflake Tinsel embossing powder. The background was then matted onto black card and the image block adhered on foam pads.

That's all from me for today. Now it's over to you...

Please pop over to the 
If You Give A Crafter A Cookie
