A Snowy Aurora (by Rachel)

This week sees our lovely guest design team member Rachel sharing her first project which is all about some Snowy Penguins.

Hi everyone I am thrilled to be back for the next three weeks sharing some of my favourite stamps with you and as it is the festive season I want to start with my take on a winter scene.

I first stamped the main image then added the extra penguins before masking them off. I wanted to create a background to imitate the aurora borealis so I used distress inks to try and give this effect.

I then added colour to the penguins and some Stickles to for that icy feel and finished by mounting it on a square white card blank.  These are such lovely stamps and are really very cute!

Thank you for joining me and I shall see you again next week.


Thanks Rachel I think you have captured the aurora extremely well, can't wait to see next week's project.

And thanks to all of you for dropping in to keep us company, please join us again to see what other delights await you from our design team.
