THT067 - Sponge a Background

I'm back with another Treehouse Thursday Challenge
Today's challenge is to SPONGE A BACKGROUND

Isn't this little penguin ADORABLE?  This is a digital stamp from the set "Happy Feet" that will be released over at Treehouse Stamps on October 1st.  I had so much fun working with this adorable digi stamp set!

The swiss dots background layer (bashful blue) has been sponged with frost white pigment ink.  Once that dried I sprayed it with some smooch spritz.  I used my heat tool to speed up the drying for the smooch spritz.

The penguin image panel was also sponged with bashful blue ink for the sky and frost white pigment ink for the snow.  Then I dipped the panel in some dazzeling diamonds.  To make my penguin look all fuzzy I used the 2 way glue pen with dazzeling diamonds.  I added some more dazzeling diamonds to his hat.  The ribbon is 5/8 inch white ribbon that I pleated and secured with a blue rhinestone brad.

Check out the other great inspiration pieces that the design team put together here:

Oh Julie looks like we were thinking alike this week. I love this penguin too. I put mine in a snowglobe but he looks just as cute by himself. Great job on this challenge.
