It sure was a cold one this morning (-2 to be exact). The chill in the air had me thinking about my Papertrey Ink 'On Ice' stamp set so off I went creating.
For the background I rubbed Brilliance Pearlescent Beige ink on a Lacy Brocade embossing folder before running it through the Big Shot. I like the effect it gives on the Shimmery White paper. The skates were stamped in black with the socks in Early Espresso. The blades of the skates were colored with a Prismacolor eggshell marker and embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder. I added 6mm gold jingle bells to the ends of the laces.
On a piece of Shimmery White paper, cut from a Spellbinders Lacey Pennants die, I stamped Winter Wonderland in Chocolate Chip and embossed it. Everything was popped up with dimensions. Tea stained lace and beige faux pearls add a vintage look.
The inside greeting was also stamped in Chocolate Chip and embossed with clear embossing powder. A little snowflake was added to the corner using VersaMark with gold embossing powder.
As a little girl I remember lacing my skates and twirling away. Have you ever been to the rink at Rockefeller Center? It is a magical place during the holidays.
I would like to thank all my new followers from the Grow Your Blog party. I still have yet to visit some of you.
