Skating Love

Hello everyone! We haven't had much of a winter this year (not that I'm complaining), but I was hoping to take my son ice skating to see if he can get the feel of the ice. He loves hockey and in-line skating, so I thought this would be the next step. I don't trust the ice tho, so I haven't taken him.

Well, you don't need ice for this skater. It's my Skating in Central Park Stick Chicks. I've used my Marbled Paper Coveralls for the background, and it reminded me of a frosted window. I used clear embossing powder, and my metallic Gelatos for the resist effect. It sure is glossy and shimmery IRL! The heart was die cut with my Punch Windows Mover's and Shapers Die (SU), and the base is Grand Nestabilities.

Stamps: Skating in Central Park (Stick Chicks), Marbled Paper Coveralls, So Much Love (LAD)

Love that shimmer!!! Such a pretty card, Rose Ann.
We haven't had much of a winter here, believe it or not, we've only been out sledding once as we have no snow! Not that I'm complaining either ;) hehe!

The perfect background for the skater! I love this...and I'm sure it's way prettier in real life. That's the way it is sometimes, but it's still really pretty!
