Edwin and Tilda go Skating

I wanted to participate in the Edwin challenge over at Magnolia Stamp Lovers but I don't have many Edwin stamps so I though that I would get a head start on some of my Christmas cards. Who knows, if I start now I may even have enough ready by the time December rolls around and I won't be stressed about getting them out on time.
I have opted to mask Edwin and Tilda skating with the snow circle. I had been planning this for another challenge last week but never got around to making the card.  The card is based on a sketch by Bev Rochester. I have used Prism cardstock and some older Basic Grey paper from my stash.

Edwin and Tilda have been coloured using my Copics and Prima colour pencils. I added some stickles to create a patch of ice for them to skate on and added some bling to the snoflakes around them. Afterall, it wouldn't be Christmas without a little sparkle.

Hi Carissa,

I just discovered your lovely blog today. Your cards look fantastic! I was wondering if you could tell me how you did the circle with the snowflakes and the little bumpy edging?

Thanks xx

Outstanding effort! I also think you should read this article. One employs Samuel F.B. Morse's dots-and-dashes technique to transmit encrypted messages in international morse code. Visit it and let us know what you think.
