Cool Wishes Snowflake Button

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE - Crushed Red Sand. My desert is a button I made from my Fiskars Snowflake Punch using a technique from the past TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - 5 Layered Button which I absolutely love making. After the crstal effects dried I tied some red ribbon, gold and silver cording through the button holes into a bow. My sketch is from Monday's THE PINK ELEPHANT CHALLENTE # 46 - SKETCH. I stamped the image in black brilliance on white cs then on a post it note so I could use it as a mask. Then with my air brush system and copic marker I sprayed some crushed curry color around the image. I did not have a match for sahara sand so I broke out my spritzer tool which I fight with every time I use it. That is why I broke down and bought an air compressor to air brush with. Anyway my penguin is at the beach and the sand is around his feet and the the sun is getting ready to set but it is still cool so he needed his scarf anyway. My sentiment is stamped in real red ink. I punched the sahara sand layer with my Fiskars snowflake border punch after stamping it with the snowflake in this darling stamp set that I got from TREEHOUSE STAMPS called COOL WISHES. How did I do?
