Arctic friends

Some of you may remember this card that I shared back in September. I really liked how this one turned out so I used the same stamp from Penny Black and another quarter of my galaxy background panel to create a similar but different card.

For this one, I heat embossed my image onto a piece of vellum and used a white coloured pencil to add some 'colour' and texture to the stars, the polar bear and the penguin's belly. I created the snowy ground using puff embossing powder.

I'm linking up my card at:
