Sponged Snowglobe Sneak Peek

This is for today's TREEHOUSE THURSDAY CHALLENGE # 67 - Sponged Background. This was made using some digital images that will be available Oct 1st from TREEHOUSE STAMPS DIGITAL Sets I printed this darling snowglobe image from "Seasonal Snowglobes". I used GIMP to manipulate the image to include the penguin and the santa hat from "Happy Feet". The sentiment is from "Santa's Vacation" that is already available.
I used some dp from DCWV that I picked up last year.
I sponged some soft sky ink on the top portion then colored the hat, mouth and feet with copics. I added some white glittery fun flock to the bottom to simulate snow in the snow globe.
I used some white liquid applique on the hat then heated it from the back side to make it puff up.
Tied some ribbon across and matted on cool carribean cs base.
Hope you love it. Be sure to check back often as more sneak peeks will follow then be sure to visit the store on October 1st to get your sets ordered.
