Winter Skates

Good morning to you all!  Today at the Crafty Sentiments Inspirations Blog sees the start of the previews of the new releases available at Crafty Sentiments on the 22nd.  There will be 8 new stamps and new dies!  Today we are showing the beautiful Winter Skates:

Isn't she just the cutest? I loved colouring her in with my Copics and adding Stickles to the trim and a touch of Glossy Accents to the ice.  The papers are October Afternoon Holiday Style I thought they were perfect with her.  I have used a Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder on Centura Pearl for the back ground.  The sentiment is Pink Petticoat cut out with a Marianne die and distressed with a bit of Broken China DI.  The image has been cut out with SB Grand Ovals and matted onto a mat cut with SB Grand Decorative Ovals One.  The snowflake is cut with Whimsy Winters Jewel and SB snowflakes die (? which one), I added Frantage Shabby Blue to the spacer and popped a pearl from my stash on the top - all the layers are seperated with foam squares to give extra dimension.  Here is another view:

If you go over to the Inspirations Blog you will see more beautiful creations made with Winter Skates including some very special Guest Designers!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says - Christmas/Winter Holiday
DigiStamps 4 Joy - Embossing

Thank you so much for looking and I will be back tomorrow with another preview!! Take care xx
