Shades of Blue… Wednesday, Jan 24 2018 

Our Challenge for you at The Paper Shelter blog this week is Shades of Blue. I’ve chosen Fantasy on Ice and created this pretty card:paper shelter

I’ve used the pre coloured image and background, cutting the panel from the background image and placing my ice skater behind to add a frame. I added some sparkle to her clothing using Kindy Glitz

For a closer look:
