So Glad You're My Friend!

So Glad You're My Friend!

Happy New Year, everyone!  

I'm Beverly Gerard, so happy to be back as a guest designer for Gerda Steiner Designs!

Today I'm sharing a card made with the adorable Valentine Penguins set.

Although we don't often have snow here in North Texas, I do love the glisten of snow.  I thought of a beautiful rainbow when the snowy moisture & sunlight are in perfect alignment to create a wintery rainbow.  Thus, this rainbow was created in soft pastel shades.  
 
I started with a light blue cardstock for the sky, then softly applied white pigment ink in touch & go style smudges, just to soften up the color as on a snowy day.  Next I used a cloud stencil and applied Distress Oxide Spun Sugar to add a fanciful interest to the sky.
The snowy hills are cut from shimmery white paper which was not adhered completely across the upper snow lines.  That created a bit of added dimension.  The adorable penguin is popped up on foam tape along with its balloon.  
 
I love the option of this friendship sentiment included in the stamp set, along with the following valentine greetings:  Happy Valentine's Day!   -   You are so loved!    -   and  Waddle I Do Without You
 
Welcome to a brand new year!
