Friday Focus

The cue card at CASology for their current challenge is SPORTS. Although sports are not really my thing in real life I do like to watch the odd bit of Winter ice skating, so that's where it led me.

Here's my card:

I've used this particular stamp so many times and its appeal to me is still as strong as ever. I think it's to do with all the movement it suggests.  I started by masking off a strip at the bottom and applying distress inks in two shades of blue. I then took those colours up onto the skater with the addition of some greys and skin colours.

Stamps: Marianne Designs, Winter Fun
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress, stormy sky, mermaid lagoon
Pens: Copic, E000, E00, E21, E33, R20, C1, C3, C5, C7, BO2, BO4

So thrilled to have had your company today, thanks so much for spending some time looking at my blog.

And keep crafting!
