It's not winter yet, but one would think that it would be colder than it is right now. But I'm not complaining (about the weather). I prefer mild winters since I no longer ice skate, sled, or do anything depicted in this card.
Yeah. If I ever tried to sled while wearing ice skates, I most likely would not be here writing this blog post. Just sayin'.
Anyways, meet Winona Loves Winter from the Uptown Collection by Stamping Bella. Winona and a whole crowd of her Uptown Girlfriends are now available at SCACD.
Winona was stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with Copic markers which I'll list below. The snow around her was also colored with Copics. Touches of Gelly Roll Stardust Pure Glitter Clear Pen were added to provide some sparkle to the snow. A silver metallic pen was used on the blades of her ice skates.
The sky was sponged in with Pebbles Shimmery Pastel Palette Chalk. Sadly, the photo does not show the shimmer of the sky or the glittery parts of the snow. Bummer.
SCACD's Garden Corners were brushed with Ice Silkz Acrylic Glaze (Luminarte's Glazes on SALE right now!)to add some shimmer. Punched metallic white snowflakes were added atop the corners and ginormous rhinestones finished 'em off.
The sentiment was stamped with Black Onyx VersaFine ink onto metallic white cardstock. It was die cut with QuicKutz dies and layered atop a big snowflake Sizzlet die cut.
The patterned papers are from the Winter Wishes 6x6 pad by Echo Park and very, very, very old, ancient KI paper. I added Holographic Border stickers to update the look.
