Bitten By The Bug 2-Penguin

This week at Bitten By The Bug 2 the challenge is to use the penguin with the umbrella from Jolly Holidays. It doesn't have to be winter or Christmas related, just keep it 'cool'!!  I cut my penguin from JH's cart, the raindrops from 3 Birds on Parade and Pooh and Friends and the phrase is from April Showers. I used Aleene's Paper Glaze on the raindrops and the top layer of the umbrella. It got thick on the umbrella. I had cleaned out the tip really good and it was free flowing big time. It dried kinda cloudy, but I think I like it that way. It even has a couple of bubbles in it, but that just looks like rain. It's so thick that it made it feel like plastic on the top side!! I popped up the penguin/umbrella and then popped up the top layer of the umbrella. Some of the raindrops are popped up with 2 pop dots to make them as high as the umbrella top and some are on only one. I glued the sentiment straight to the card and then did some doodling. I used the paper glaze on the raindrops on the sentiment, too. The designer paper is from My Mind's Eye-quite contrary-Colorful Umbrellas. All the pieces I used for my cuts are from my scrap bin. Ya'll have plenty of time to join in on the fun since this challenge just started Monday. Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
