CAS(E) this Sketch #403


 Love the new Winter Penguins set!  This is one of my favorite sets in the new catalog!  Super cute!  These little guys have so much character.  There is sure to be one that calls your name!  The set is available with or without coordinating Thin Cuts.  Here is a look at the complete set-



I had the hardest time deciding which penguin to ink up first!  One of my favorite sketch challenges is sadly closing!  While my crafting time is limited, I wanted to make sure I made it into the last couple of sketches.  If you have never played at CAS(E) this Sketch, I highly recommend you jump in while you can! They will be closing at the end of the month.  Here is the current sketch-



To create my card, I masked off a rectangle on my card with purple tape.  I then blended on Distress Oxide inks in Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans. I applied a Shimmer Mist to bring out the Distress Oxides.  I wanted to add a more snow effect, so I attempted to splatter on white paint with mixed results! I have always struggled with splatters, so I recently purchase the Tim Holtz splatter brush.  I obviously need to practice more, as I was not getting the white dots that I had hoped for!  My penguin is stamped in Intense Black ink and a touch of color added with Copics.  The sentiment was stamped in Intense Black as well. Super cute card that came together in minutes.
