Here's the sketch, here's my interpretation and here's what I've learned about myself:
- Sometimes I am stubborn!
- So stubborn, that even when I see the image is too large for the sketch, I STILL won't give up!
- Even when I flip the sketch & can't make it work, I STILL won't give up!
- Even when I see I can't meet all the elements of the sketch, I STILL won't give up.
K, in summary? I.AM.REALLY.STUBBORN. Part II - hope Wendy doesn't fire me! :D
K, back to my card; I just love this penguin image and wanted to use it (refer to above notes). I stamped several RI miscellaneous sentiment stamps on Basic Grey's white paper pad; love how it turned out, I used PTI Pure Poppy and Dark Chocolate. I distressed the polka dot & kraft paper and edged them with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
I cut the snowflake out, sponged while still in the die and then added glitter with a Quickie Glue Pen; added some Dark Chocolate grosgrain topped with baker's chocolate twine. I also added a button to the snowflake & tied it off with the baker's chocolate twine.
