Keep on blending

I'm sharing another Christmas card today - YAY!!  That's two made ready for Christmas I'm not falling into that panic trap again.  I've decided to use Huddle (you can find them here).  I've coloured them monochrome but decided to so a beautiful coloured sky backdrop for them.

I've used the N range of Copics to colour the penguins, then some BV,s and V's for the sky (took lots of blending but I got there).   The texture was created with a sponge and some Copic cleaner.  The stars were added using a white gel pen.

Creating a single layer card today, I've added some DecoArt glitter to the snow and finished off with a silver glitter sentiment which I got in Hobbycraft.

Thanks for popping by today
