Ice Skating Chloe at Pink Gem Designs


It's time for another challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge, and this week (Challenge #97) the theme is "Use Two Images." This challenge will run from 8:00 AM September 14, to 6:00 PM September 20, and the prize for the winner will be 2 individual digi images (NOT SETS) from Pink Gem Designs. So do head on over and see what the rest of the lovely Design Team have created, then join us, won't you? We'd love to see you!

It's time to start getting one's Christmas and winter-themed cards under way, so today's card shows sweet little "Ice Skating Chloe" out on the ice.  I've used the digital stamp version, but she is also available as a polymer stamp which you can find here.

I've colored her with Copics and placed her behind a window frame cut with my Silhouette Cameo, which I then dry brushed with two shades of silver shimmer paints to loosely mimic woodgrain.

Check out her fluffy earmuffs and the trim on her coat.  This was done with Puffies puff paint which puffs up with heat, no dry time required as with regular puff paints.

I've glittered the snowflake die cut then applied the "Christmas Time Calendar" to it with a rhinestone decoration and some hand numbering after first coloring it with Copics.  Rhinestones also decorate the tiny snowflakes and the side of the base layer.  Can one have too many rhinestones?  Not in my world.

I've stamped the inside with off-stamped snowflakes, leaving plenty of room for a message.

Thank you for joining me today, and do pop by the rest of the Design Team to see what they have created for you.  And don't forget to play along in our challenge!

Happy crafting!

Such a fun, cute card, Shea! I love peeking out the window, which is all frosty - very clever! The little jewels used as snowflakes are very magical, and well as the fluffy dimension in her fur on the coat and muffler!
