Ice Skaters

This is a card I made , using the En Francais, Four the Holidays, Serene Snowflakes and Winter Post sets. The skaters I stamped in brown stazon, and while it was still wet I used clear embossing powder on them and then colored the white areas with white watercolor pencil. then the snowflakes which are not as noticable in the picture are stamped in white craft ink and embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder. then the edge was put a bit of glue and then added the silver glitter glass. The background is done in by stamping the en francais and then I cut it into pieces, and used the bottom and top of it, and stamped more snowflakes on a piece in the center. and all was sponged around the edge with early espresso. The greeting was stamped on very vanilla card stock then sponges a bit, and then a glimmer brad was inserted. with the greeting.
Thanks for looking Cindy.
