Have an Ice Day - Ice Skater Slider Card

Had fun making this slider style card using an Ice Skater stamp/die and a slider die. Stamped the Ice Skater multiple times so I could paper piece the outfit. Used pencil colors for Ice Skater's face. Used watercolors to color the Ice Skater's hair. Used a Snow marker on Ice Skater's skates. Used a marker for silver on Ice Skater's skate blades. 

This card reminded me of the fun times my hubby & I had when we took basic ice skating lessons when we first moved to Central TX. I enjoyed the basic lessons so much I continued and took next level class which was jumps & spins. Also, hubby & I went skiing in Angel Fire, New Mexico. I took beginner ski lessons on the bunny slopes. Enjoyed the ice skating more. I do not have any photos of me skiing or ice skating.
