Your so Cool!

Not only do I have a fun project today, this project also gave me an idea for a little video I want to do that will show you how I searched and found this tag image on MyCutSearch.com

I had made a little tag for a co-worker of mine last spring and she asked me to make her some more.  I was busy moving and kind of missed all of the fall holidays, so I am staring in with the winter ones for her.

I used a stamp set by Lawn Fawn called Critters in the Snow.  I thought the penguins on this stamp set were really cute.  I stamped the first one on the tag, and then stamped it again on a post it note and cut around it with my Westcott scissors.

I placed the post it note penguin over the top of the penguin I stamped on the tag, and then I stamped the larger penguin to the left of the first penguin, overlapping it just a little bit.

Once I peeled the post it note penguin off, you can see that it now looks like the larger penguin is standing behind the smaller one a little bit.  I put the post it note penguin back in the Lawn Fawn stamp set package just in case I ever want to layer these penguins like this again.

Now it is time to add color!  I used some sponges that I dabbed into different shades of blue and teal and rubbed them around the area above the penguins.  This gave a fun cloud/sky look to the tag.  Then I drew some lines with a colored pencil to make it look like they were standing on a pile of snow.

I colored in the bodies of the penguins, and stamped a few snowflakes in shades of blue.  I used a really deep blue for the sentiment “You’re so cool!”

I dabbed a little silver glitter glue in the center of the two largest snowflakes just to add a little sparkle to the tag.

The final touch was to add a piece of ribbon in shades of blue from the top.
