Happy Monday ... hope you are off to a great start!
Today I have a couple 'scenery' creations to share with you ... hope you like them.
This creation began with this adorable "Little Ice Skater" digi image from the "priscillastyles" store. To me, it appeared she was thinking about wanting to join in the skating but was a little shy and didn't have the confidence. That was the THOUGHT behind using this Thomas Kinkade "Skater's Pond" stamp as the background. I simply stamped the image onto my white panel using Versafine Black ink then colored it in with CHALK and make-up applicators. I printed the Little Skater image twice ... once on white paper, then again onto red/white polka dot designer paper. Using my Fiskars swivel craft knife, I cut out her dress, hair ribbon and skates. Her hair & body were colored with a Prismacolor Marker - PM72 - Eggshell. PunchBunch punches were used for the snowflakes and I used Pop Dots for added dimension.

BEARLY READY FOR WINTER
This card was created with the "LET IT SNOW" challenge over on the Gingerloft Challenge Blog. The bear image is one of her digi images and I simply colored it with brown CHALK. My background was made by first punching snowflakes and a moon (circle) from Eclipse Masking material. I placed them around on my white cardstock then sponged over the entire surface with Tim Holtz Broken China distress ink ... then Faded Jeans distress ink. A touch of SU More Mustard ink was sponged across the one side of the moon just to soften it a bit. Not sure it came out exactly as I had it envisioned ... but it's okay. I've used Pop Dots on the bear as well as a couple snowflakes that I had laying on my workstation that had been leftover from another project. They were die cut using the Spellbinder Create-a-Flake Three die set. I haven't added a sentiment yet because I'm not sure how I want to use this card. Time will tell!
