My favorite winter sport

It's the second Wednesday of the month, and time for Christmas at Sweet Stampin' to start a new challenge. Our challenge is ANYTHING GOES WITH CHRISTMAS.  I used this fabulous image from Stamping Bella for my card. I loved skating as a younger person and love watching it on tv now! No wonder I'm drawn to ice skating images!!


I colored her with Copics and the die of the pine boughs is by Memory Box and the trees on the side are by Joy.  The frame around my image is a nesting set by Susan Wilson. I used white paint and clear embossing powder on my pine boughs border across the top. I splurged and use some coveted white glitter paper and dark aqua glitter paper for my pine trees on the side of my image. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.


If the ice looks shiny to you, it's because I put a coat of Ranger Glossy Accents on it. I used my Stampendous Chunky White embossing powder for the snow falling.

The team at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' have made some outstanding cards to inspire and encourage you to join this challenge of ANYTHING GOES WITH CHRISTMAS.

  3. This is delightful, Gail, and I've always admired figure skating - they're so graceful. Love your color combination, and an outstanding idea to layer your trees, so they really stand out. Ah, slippery ice, and snowflakes and glitter added to make for a most awesome, wintery scene. And, as always, a great coloring job of your image. Take a bow, girl !!
