I made this for a swap a little while ago. I wanted to do something seasonal and winter-y. The concept was a skiing penguin inside of a snow-globe. After I painted on the background and penguin, I covered it in silver glitter to look like the shaken-up snow stuff.

Here's the pic with a better view of the penguin:

And a pic with a better view of the "snow":

(Also I lied, it's not actually an Altoids tin, but an off-brand of mint which doesn't emboss the top of the box. I had to foist mints off on my co-workers for a week so I could empty the box out to use for this. "No I swear I'm not trying to insinuate that you have bad breath, I'm just on a deadline! Eat the stupid mints!")
