Winter Skating

As soon as I saw this image from Jellypark I knew what paper to use! This Skating Boy and Tag is one of the new releases this week and he is just fab to colour! I've used Aquamarkers for colouring plus a little glitter glue and he's been cut out (look - no white border!) to look like he's actually skating on the paper design!


The paper is actually quite glittery and so is the snowman - the photo just does not show it at all well. I've cut the tag out which comes with the image and tied some embroidery thread through it which actually looks a bit like a pom pom on a hat......!

I've distressed the edges of the paper with some scissors as it didn't quite look right just stuck onto a card blank.

The other new release will be blogged later on - I was fully intending to do them yesterday but I spent all day at a Craft Fair and was shattered when I got home after standing for 4 hours - I am now aching!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

2 Sisters: Let It Sparkle
Ellephantastic: Weather Related
Bloggers Challenge: For The Boys
Daring Cardmakers: Water, Water (snow and ice - was water and I've used Aquamarkers for colouring!)

  • Image and Tag: Jellypark, coloured with Aquamarkers plus a little glitter glue
  • Paper: Dovecraft Let It Snow
  • Everything else: My stash
