SPS - Snowy Joy To The World

Sweet Pea Stamps

Today is my day to showcase an image from Sweet Pea Stamps for our Variation Week where the whole team are using the image 'Snowy Joy to the World' by Conie Fong.  Just for a change I decided on a bag this week :)

To begin with I cut some mountains and icebergs with my die cutter along with the text for the sentiment.
Next to pick a bag hahahaha
 I added sky vellum to the top of the bag and airbrushed the back shadow mountains and iceberg shadows with of all things my Promarker called Arctic Blue - yep very appropriate.
 For the front mountains and iceberg tops I opted just to add white glitter.
 Onto colouring the digi.  Promarkers were used again here and the white glitter too which was placed on the white fluffy bits on the hat and bottom snow area.  Red glitter was added to the scarf and Liquid Crystal to the JOY bit to make it pop saying as it was coloured the same colours as the scarf.

Promarkers used
 Once all the elements were in place and the glitter dry I fussy cut the penguin and then attached him to the bag on his iceberg with a spring.  Well who does not like springs, so much fun.
 Here you can see Mr. Penguin really slipping on the ice :) :) :)
 Ribbon was attached just under the mountains and, using cyan and white organza a bow was added to the handle.  I attached two wee bells to this which really do ring - this is such a fun bag.
 And here we have the finished bag, now it just needs somebody to give it to.  I am in Saudi and we don't have any penguins or icebergs here just camels and sand, and more sand, and even more sand!!!!!
