Skating...

I am just loving the stamps that came in the Magnolia Winter Club! This is the first time I've ordered it, and it certainly won't be the last!

For today's card, I used Tilda and Edwin skating. Isn't it just the sweetest image? They were colored in with copic markers and pain-stakingly cut out with my trusty paper snips (and an exacto knife for those tricky little skates!). I used a white gel pen for highlights, and a Sakura gelly roll pen to add some sparkle to the blades on the skates.

The background is "Skate Pond" by The Stampin' Place. I masked off the bottom half of the pond and stamped it onto a piece of SU Soft Sky. I added some color to the town and background skaters with copic markers. I used a Versamarker to color in the pond (expanding it a bit) and embossed it with SU Iridescent Ice EP. I then sponged white craft ink onto the areas where I needed snow, and accented it with some white liquid applique. I finished off the card with a sentiment from the SU hostess set, Best Yet.

Melissa, I can see why this is your favorite. It is absolutely adorable and I so love the scene you created with the snowy little border around the ice. Thanks so much for posting a link to your project on my blog. I'm sure several people are going to enjoy popping in to check this out.
