Our Challenge for you at Midweek Magnolias this week is How Charming!! We would like to see a charm on your creation somewhere and a Magnolia stamp of course. I’ve chosen the very sweet Mini Ice Tilda and Alota Park and Pond background along with some wonderful Magnolia DP

This is what I came up with:

How Charming

The template for the Ice Skate can be purchased from Sandra if you would like to make one of your own.  I have embellished with lots of flowers and die cuts and added some Snow Tex for effect

My images have been masked and stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair, background and clothes: E47-E40, W3-W00, C3-C00 I’ve added lots of Stickles to the Ice and Trees to give some dimension. Her dress and the background snow is highlighted using my Sharpie White Paint Marker. The sky is added using SU Soft Sky Ink and a sponge dauber.
