We have another fabulous set to show you from The Cat’s Pajamas today, it’s called Penguin Joy and there’s some pretty adorable winter penguin images in it...but I decided to go a bit of a different direction with this design, giving it a cool elegant look.
I took the pretty snowflakes that are in the set and embossed them in white and silver on watercolour paper, as well as embossing the “Let It Snow sentiment". Next I took some reinker ink (Bermuda Bay, Pacific Point, Taken with Teal) and washed in some icy colour. After it dried, I spritzed some shimmery spray overtop to really get that sparkly-ice look. Super shimmery in person.
Next I added a pretty vellum panel with the sentiment done in a fish-tale banner, topping it off with another of our TCP CutUps, Holiday Toppers, sewing it on. This helps hold the vellum in place without having any adhesive show.
A few sprinkles of rhinestones and sequins and a shimmery ribbon tucked under the vellum finish it off.
Here’s a peek at this cute set....see what I mean about adorable penguins?
