Fantasy on Ice - The Paper Shelter 2nd Birthday Blog Hop







Good Morning fellow crafters and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop. Our hop is a very exciting one for all of us at it is in celebration of our 2nd Birthday!!!! If you have landed here from  Angelique's blog then you're heading in the right direction - if not then you'll want to head on back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start again, as you'll not want to miss out on this one! Our Design Team have worked very hard and are showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter Website and each blog on the hop is offering one lucky commenter a digi of their choice as well as the main prize, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot.

My card today features 'Fantasy on Ice'. Couldn't resist using this one when I saw her.. and twice is really a bonus as the challenge is 'Two of Something'


The image is straight cut and mounted on silver mirror board. I have added Nitwit's papers from LOTV and Core'dinations cardstock. The backing is computer generated using Craft Artist 2. I did the design then using cut out studio cut the skaters and added them to the card as white images.
The corner and poinsettia are SB die cuts. Icicle border from MB. Sentiment, doily and pearls from my stash.


They are coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Prisma Pencils and Sakura Pens (on laces of boots and snowflakes in their hair, but it doesn't show in the pics)


I added liberal amounts of Glamour Dust to the icicles, snowflakes and the fur on their dresses, and Flowersoft to the trees.  Distress ink around the papers and to the flower.


The inside does match the front.

From here you will need to hop on over to Bente's blog. Don't forget to leave your comment for a chance of winning your choice of one of the fab digis available in store.
Hop! Hop! Hop!
