It's time for another challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu. We have both teams serving up this week for your viewing pleasure. We sure hope you will join in the challenge as well.
For my project, I wanted to show you something that was quick and easy. If you are like me then the days are going by much to quickly to work on lengthy projects, or at least not too many of them.
I started with a chipboard coaster and glued (wet glue) blue cardstock to both sides. I tore two layers of white cardstock to represent snow & glued them in place. While waiting for the glue to dry, I punched the shapes for the penguin and glued them down. The body is a 1-3/4" circle with a small bit cut off the bottom, the wings are the smallest SU oval punch tucked under the body and the white chest (ink the edges) is the largest oval punch cut to match the body. The eyes are the 1/2" and 1/4" circle punches. The beak is from a piece of orange scrap. I tied a knot in 1/4" ribbon for the bow tie and punched 1/8" circles for buttons. I used SU Boho flower punch (smallest) for the feet (tuck up under the body so only 3 petals show). Rinse and repeat if you want a bunch of these for gifts/ornaments/tags. When the glue is dry ink the edges. I punched holes in the top of the coaster for ribbon, threaded the ribbon through and tied a knot to the front. I wanted to do this before I added the Ranger crackle glue on top so I could seal the knots. Let dry for a few hours. I just love the shimmer this glue adds to this project. I also added a little crackle glue to the sides of the coaster to seal the edges.
I entered these challenges:
