onic has paper packs? They come in 8"x8" and have 3 single sided sheets of each pattern. I was pleasantly surprised they even had 6 sheets of sentiment toppers in the one I have. I love that they are single sided too...that way I don't waste a cool pattern on the back.
I started out with cutting the die on black cardstock. The Happy Penguin die gives a beautiful thin lined image that is nice on its, own but I can never stop with simple...I have to load it up.
Once both pieces were done I colored in the spaces that would show through the die cut lines and then glued down the black cut out piece directly over the uncolored portion. I also created a second lined piece using white so I could color and cut out the beak and the feet.
Nuvo Crystal Drops White for the snow around the main image. I also added buttons with nice fat Nuvo drops on them. Have you tried this and had the Nuvo drops sink into the button holes creating uneven drops? A simple fix is to add a mini Glue Dot to the top o the button and then add the Nuvo on top of the Glue Dot, that way its can't sink into the holes. You are welcome!
Make sure when you are coloring it up you do some fun cast shadows on the outside of the image to make it look dimensional. It's the wow factor!
All I can say is this was super fun and easy to create! Now back to organizing my RV studio so I can play more later.
