Olympic Tryouts



Do you think penguins try jump spins, salchows and toe-loops?

I had this idea last night and couldn't wait to put it to paper this morning!
I sketched the ice line and stamped 3 penguins, masked them and stamped the Trees backgrounder (from CHF). I masked and sponged the trees with Adirondack stained glass...in real life the green isn't so green! I realize there wouldn't be much green in the middle of winter!! But it was too late! lol
I then stamped 3 more penguins, cutting off one leg (they didn't feel a thing ) so I could change how they looked when I repositioned them on dimensionals.
Their scarves and beaks are colored with marker. The ice is twinkling H2O's blue ice.

Don't forget to be watching the CHF blog for the Fun and Prizes next week!!
