Chilly Willy's New Accessories

Chilly Willy knows that December is quickly approaching here in Wisconsin. The sunny days while still sunny have a C-c-c-cold breeze and sometimes a few snow flurries fall from the sky to remind us that the winter weather will be here soon.

Well, the scarf didn't work so well in my last attempt w/ Willy. It just wouldn't lay the way I wanted it to so I went back to the drawing board. Willy is now sporting ear muffs and mittens. Just what every Wisconsin Penguin needs for the winter months, right? :)

Oh by the way, the mittens were pretty easy to make--Penguins don't have thumbs! See? LOL

Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red
Ink: Always Artichoke and Ruby Red (sponged on muffs and mittens)
Punches: large oval, curvy label, corner rounder, scallop oval
Accessories: Top Note Die, White Signo Pen, sponge, wire, pop up and regular glue dots

Mittens are 1/2 large oval (Garden Green) and then I punched a Real Red large oval and inserted it back into the punch to get the shape I wanted and then cut the top of the mitten so it was straight. Then I sponged everything and added a snowflake using my gel pen.

Muffs are a scallop oval reinserted into the punch and punched again to make a little smaller. I added the wire to the top note die using a glue dot and then sponged the muffs and covered the ends of the wires w/ a pop up glue dot and positioned the muffs on top.
Clear as mud, right?!
