Fun on the Ice - in JUNE?


Today I want to post a winter/Holiday card from Janlynn's Stamps Happen line called "The Skaters". The artist is Claire Stoner and I think it is an adorable and fun image. Doesn't it just make you want to pick out your favorite scarf and mittens and go play in the snow. Well, maybe not now since it's just the beginning of summer, but give it a few months and all you skaters will be anxious to put those skates on. I colored this all with Copics and used an SU! DP from the retired Wintergreen set. I used Soft Sky and Hunter Green for the solid CS. The sentiment is from PTI's Mailbox Greetings. Love that set! Hope you like this fun image. Janlynn carries some beautiful craft stamps. Hope you can check them out. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful week.

Karen, this is so wonderful. I love the image and what you did with it. Yes, I am longing for some winter weather. The summer's in southwest Florida are just too muggy for me.

I love this image! There was a company called Stamps Happen that had the BEST images. I followed your link to the site and I think it might be the same artist... WOW! There are some great images on that site and they look like so much fun to color! This card is amazing! The ice and snow look so real!
