Ice Skating

It feels really strange sat in the garden in the lovely sunshine making a snowy themed card. This card was created for Winter Wonderland.  A sketch challenge.  So you can go anywhere you want with this type of challenge so I used my Kars Ollyfant Winter Skates stamp set because it is one of my favourites.

To create this card I used Stamps: Kars Ollyfant Winter Skates.  Cardstock: White hammered, navy blue, white glittered.  Papers: DP Doodlebug Designs Inc. Winter assortment.  Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black.  Colouring: Copic markers E000, E00, E11, R20, E25, E29, E31.  Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils.  Sakura gel pens Stardust #744, Souffle #950, Glaze #850.  Papermania blue shimmer chalk.  Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circle Large.  Cuttlebug Snowflakes.  Embellishments: Deco Art Glamour Dust crystal.  Anita's peel off border. 

Hints and Tips
One of my favourite ways to create a snow effect is to colour the snow in with a Sakura White Souffle pen and while it is still wet add glitter to it, so there is no need for glue and it dries very quickly.
