Dancing On Ice in a Winter Wonderland


Here I am again, at the last minute as usual for the CASology Blog Challenge.  The cue card for this week's challenge is Winter, I thought this cheeky chap dancing on the ice was ideal.  The card also fits the Addicted to CAS weekly challenge embossing so I will be entering it there too.  This subject would be ideal for the Simply Less Is More Challenge "Sport or Exercise" but it is a one layer challenge, I am sure I can manage to use him again!


 The stamp is "Ice Skating" by Marriane Designs, I stamped him onto the card, embossed him and coloured him with distress inks.  I embossed a square piece of card with a dotty embossing folder, cut out the center with a spellbinders die, and stamped the sentiment in the bottom corner.  Some string was tied round and fastened with a bow, the panel was them fixed to the card with 3D sticky fixers.

I am working on half a dozen other things at the moment and hope to post a few more creations later today or tomorrow, at last I am getting organised and maybe next week I will not be posting to challenges at the last minute.

Thanks to all you lovely ladies who have been commenting recently, your comments are very much appreciated.

Sylv, this is just a darling little wintry card. He does look like he is a natural on the ice...I'd have both arms out trying to balance! Great coloring, sweet dry embossing...great card! Thanks for playing along with us at CASology this week!

What a great image ... love the way you've colored him!! Also love that he's in behind the negative circle die. The polka-dot embossing and twine are wonderful details. Thanks for joining us at Addicted to CAS. Loll xx

Fabulous image Sylv - wish I could ice-skate like that! Love how you placed the skater in the aperture and surrounded him with the snowy embossing.
