I know - it's a bit early isn't it? Although I suppose in some parts of the world they have snow already - I adore making Christmas cards and am definitely in Christmas mode - besides the majority of my stash is Christmas themed so I need to make loads of cards to be able to use them all! 

Today I've used the lovely little set from Clearly Besotted called Let It Snow.  This is an old set from a few years ago but I just love this little penguin.  I started out by masking off the background and adding a light snow drift with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass.  I then used the same ink to stamp the snowflakes which are from Gina K Designs - also an old stamp set called Season of Joy. I coloured in the penguin with some SU water colour pencils and a blending pen and popped him up on dimensionals.  I added some stickles for his hat and the inside of the snowflkaes.  I layered it onto some white sparkly paper and then added a small snowflake stamp around the edge with Versamark ink.

I'm adding this into a few challenges:

Retro Rubber Challenge - Anything Goes 
Addicted To Stamps - Anything Goes
Pixies Playground Challenge
