Mama Elephant - Arctic Penguins

Do you think it is too early to start thinking about Christmas?  I definitely do,  
 but when I saw the Arctic Penguins set by Mama Elephant I had to have it.

I had a go at using some distress and pigment inks to create a sky background...still working on that technique but I'll get there.  I then used Heat and Stick powder from Stampin' Up! to stamp some stars on the sky and heated it with my heat tool to make it sticky so that I could then sprinkle some Dazzling Diamonds by SU on top and again used my heat tool to set it.

I then used Paper Mill Direct's Hammered White Card (which is really good for stamping on as well) and gives the card some texture for the top layer. I die cut a circle and also the Noel sentiment which again is a die from SU making sure to keep the little pieces that fall out of the die when you take the word out. 
 
I coloured the word Noel with a Copic Marker and then stuck the card with the sky on behind the top layer making sure I put some glue down on the bottom to hold the sentiment in place when I popped the word back in.
 
Hope you like it.  All supplies used to make this card are listed below.
