Christmas Card Challenge #3

I think you'll have fun with the Inspirational Photo for this week's Christmas Card Challenge . . . 


This card just "fell together."  Sometimes I get lucky like that.

I used a pre-colored digi from Doodle Pantry (Winter Critters) and enhanced the colors a bit with my Copics~you don't have to do this step, but I like to feel I'm contributing to the image {smile}.  Using the .png digi files, I merged the Christmas Tree and the Penguin together, matching up the snowbank in the back so it looked like they were meant to be together. I also flipped the Penguin image so he was facing to the right.

I added some shading to the "snow" with a grey Copic, then added a bit of Crystal glitter glue above the shading. I also added a few "clouds" to the sky to complete the overall look. Oh, and I had to make the star shine with a bit of Glossy Accents.

Please stop by the Christmas Card Challenges blog to see what the other DT member's created this week (or you can click on any of their names below to go directly to their blog). 

Love, love, love the penguin cards.
