Victorian Ice Skates

Hello My Friends,

Today I am going to share with you a wintery card I made for Pattie's Creations Design Challenge 100 ~ Vintage.  One of the rules is you have to use a digital image from Pattie's Creations Digital Images on Etsy, so I choose the Vintage Ice Skate image for my card.  I just love the look of these skates with those swirls on them!!

For this A2 card I started with kraft cardstock and inked the edges in Desert Sand ink, then I added the snowflake paper after inking the edges with the same ink.  Then I printed out two of the ice skate images and colored them in with Copic markers. I colored the laces in with a Sky Blue Spica pen, and I used a Gelly Roll glitter pen to accent the black swirls on the skates.  I used some Sparkle N Sprinkle Cloud Nine glitter on the tops of the skates and the holly.  After that dried I stamped both skates with VersaMark and then put some clear embossing powder on them and then heat embossed them.  I used some We R Memory Keepers Seweasy Mermaid fancy floss to hang the skates from the top of the card.  Next I cut out some snowflakes using some white sparkly paper and attached them on the skates and card.  So do you think these skates look Vintage??

I hope I have inspired you to create something beautiful today!  Don't forget to check out the digital images at Pattie's Creations Digital Images on Etsy and to check out the other enteries in Pattie's Creations Design Challenge 100 ~ Vintage!!
