Penguins on the ice - New York style

These sweet penguins are made with stamps that came free with a magazine last year and I've colored with Promarkers. The hat and scarf are from the same set which also included dies to cuut them out.
I've used these stamps earlier this year and made them a frosty landscape (see here), but this time I made them a New York evening scene. The sky is made with brusho, inks,  and a white mist. I die cut the cityscape and border of trees, metallic tape was used to make the ice.


I'd like to enter this card in these challenges:
Rudolph Days - January
Cutie Pie Challenge - Cute + Winter Warmers
House of Cards - Add a Building and/or Inspiration photo (buildings)
ABC Christmas Challenge - "A' anything goes or something beginning with "B" (Blue+brusho)

Your blue sky with the NY silouette is just amazing and these penguins look so cute! Great idea make the ice with metallic tape, it's so striking! The paperpiecing for the hat and the scarf plus the border of trees add a lovely dimensional effect to the scene! Well done!

Adorable penguins, skating on the ice with the dark skyscape in the background. A very clever design, indeed, and the darkness of the winter sky, shows up the buildings and the cute penguins so well. The ice looks quite 'slippery', so that's a great technique you've done on that as well! TFS & Hugs
