Ice Skating

Hello bloggers!  Today I have a card I created with an adorable stamp from QKR Stampede called Ice Skating (#7902) I think penguins are just so cute.  Petting a penguin is one of the things on my bucket list and one day I will pet one.  But enough about that, on to the card.
I started with a piece of white card stock and stamped "Ice Skating" with
Black Onyx Versafine ink.  We all know that is my favorite ink to work with. I colored him in with water color pencils, then fussy cut the image. 

The card base is cut  4.25" x 11" and scored at 5.5" and is also white card stock.  I used Faded Jeans Distress Ink to ink around the outside of the front of the card, using a foam pad.

I then used Glossy Accents and spread it over the bottom of the card front to give it the look of ice.  I also used the Glossy Accents on the blades of the skates.

I used foam tape to adhere the penguin to the card front to give it dimension, which, unfortunately, doesn't show in the picture.

The sentiment was printed from my computer before I started the rest of the card. I love using the computer for sentiments that I don't have a stamp for. Easy as can be.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you like my little skater. Stop by the
QKR Stampede store and see what other wonderful stamps they have.  Their images come in unmounted rubber as well as digital, so stop in and take a look.

Leave me a comment, I love to know you've been here and hear what you think.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!

I love the way penguins look and they feel so funny usually wet and warm rubber feel. We have a zoo just blocks from my house.LOL
