Cuteness Overload!

Greetings! Have you checked out Stampotique's new release? Have you done the blog hop? If you answered "No!" to either question, you really ought to head over to Stampotique and check out the new stamps. And if you like to win fun and fabulous stamps, click over HERE and start the hop! I know that you'll be inspired by the artwork!

Here's my second ATC for July's "Frame It" theme. I've used the super-cute penguins from The Crew with Words on the Side (Karen Hayselden)

The Crew with Words on the Side (without the words) was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, colored with Copic markers, fussy-cut, and edged with a Black Artist Pitt Brush pen (Faber Castell).

Mottled blue cardstock was cut to size, then the lower bit was painted with Titanium White Media Fluid Acrylic (MFA) paints (DecoArt). When the paint was dry, the penguins from The Crew with Words on the Side were adhered. Crystal Glamour Dust glitter (DecoArt) was added over the white paint to add an icy touch.

Black specialty cardstock was die-cut twice with the filmstrip from the At The Movies die set (Die-namics). The filmstrips were adhered to the back and the front of the image panel, then adhered to a ATC-sized piece of clearish acetate. 

The sentiment was computer generated and die-cut with a stitched circle die from the Blueprints 3 die set (Die-namics). The leftover black cardstock was die-cut with an arrow die (QuicKutz). Staples from my beloved Tiny Attacher (Idea-ology) were used to secure the frame and arrows to the acetate. The final step was to adhere the ATC front to an ATC cut from the same blue cardstock.
