Stampendous: Cool Penguin

Welcome to the first ABC Christmas Challenge of 2019!!! I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and wish you all the very best for a Happy and Healthy 2019!

We are now starting our 9th year! Can you believe it! I started as a guest for the first ever challenge and stayed! The team are all so lovely and it is a pleasure to work alongside such lovely teamies. We are also welcoming some new and super talented ladies onto the team, so please give a lovely warm welcome to:
Lynda aka Loopy Loo Cards 
Julie aka Julie's Crafty Spot
Wei aka Handade Card By Wei 
and last but not least
Lindsay aka Bashful Blogging

This month the lovely Helen is the hostess and the theme is 

A - Anything goes
and/or
B - Berries
I went with the Anything Goes option and used this super cute Cool Penguin Stamp and Die Set from Stampendous 


For the background I dabbed some Stormy Sky, Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks onto a craft sheet, spritzed lightiy with water and dabbed the watercolor paper into it. When it was dry I used a Falling Snow Stencil, White Embossing paste and a sprinkling of Prisma Glitter to add texture and sparkle. 

I coloured the image with copic markers and gave him an ugly jumper ;-) 


I wanted to make this interactive so I used a Lawn Fawn Slide On Over Die to give him a ski slope. I made the snowballs using Pretty Pink Posh Clear Drops, iced with prisma glitter





and I finished the inside. 



This month's lovely hostess Helen is donating these fabulous prizes for two lucky winners!! Woo Hoo!!! Thanks Helen! :-)

So exciting to be on this team with such talent! Your penguin is adorable, although I have seen far uglier Christmas jumpers - his is rather cute! Love the fun interactive snow hill element, too. Beautiful sky background as well!
