There hasn't been a lot of snow in my neck of the woods this month and lots of roller coaster temperatures...from freezing cold to the 40's! I like the 40's better, but for everyone out there who loves the Winter sports, hope you're getting enough snow to ski, skate, sled, build snowmen, etc. When I was young I loved to ice skate...my wonderful dad even made an ice rink for my brothers and I to skate on one year! My ankles wouldn't hold me up now, but I sure do have fond memories of skating in my younger years!
I started by water coloring my background with Spun Sugar DI and salt. I think the salt technique works better with darker colors, but I really had my heart set on a soft pink colored background. The salt did do it's thing...it's just very hard to see because it's so light! Here's a closer up photo:
Once my background was dry I added the die cut skates (Gina Marie Designs) and then added a Pierced Feature Frame (PTI) die cut to frame the skates. It still felt like it needed something, so I added a few die cut snowflakes from MFT that I cut in half and added against the side edges of the frame. A few sequins finished off my card and I added my "Winter Wishes" sentiment to the inside of the card.
