Winter Wonderland.

What a winter! My kiddos just went back to school after 2 weeks out and I just a call that school will be closed tomorrow! They will be quite pleased to say the least when I don't wake them however as kids goes they will most likely wake up earlier than usual.
So are you ready for a new challenge from Inky Impressions? It just so happens to be an amazing sketch created by the ever so talented Dominique.

Here is my creation:


I used the image called Ice Skating Rachel isn't she fun? I colored her with Prismacolor Markers, I love these markers I realize most feel Copics are where it's at however they are made over seas so I am going for local. Speaking of made in the USA these stamps from Inky Impressions are born right here in the states how awesome is that!  Now don't get me wrong I have plenty-o-stamps made else where, there are so many wonderful companies...
Anyhow I had a great time creating this card and I tried to give the illusion of her skating around the cat by using that fun cut from Cricuts Wild Card cartridge. The patterned paper is K&Company and the card stock a mix of Close To My Heart and Hobby Lobby Brand. I sanded the buttons to expose some of the white and used my Spellbinders Winter Wonderland for creating the snowflakes. Well that about wraps it up, make sur to stop by Inky Impressions Challenges to scope out the rest of the Inkettes amazing creations. Have a wonderful Wednesday! Beth
