Skating


Sadly it's my last week as a guest designer at Christmas Challenges (with sketches) and as always there is a fabulous sketch to follow. This week we are sponsored by Stampin' Up. I have really enjoyed my guest designer slot for the last three months, thanks for asking me girls.

I was lucky enough to win a Tiddly Inks image recently and chose this little cutie. she has been coloured with Copics with a little Sakura Clearstar pen on her skates and lots of diamond stickles. The papers are Echo Park Winter Wishes. I've used DI Faded Jeans around the edges, added some baker's twine, snowflake charm, punched snowflakes and die cut skates cute with a Marianne die. I actually bought these from eBay as I love the die but didn't feel it was one I would use very much as they are rather big so buying some diecuts seemed a more sensible solution.
