Did you have a skating pond when you were a kid? I went skating on Barnegat Bay in New Jersey one winter as a child. It was pretty scary as the ice kept making all sorts of loud noises. It has to be pretty cold to freeze salt water. This is the second week of the Winter theme challenge at Craft a Scene and I have created a scene around this fabulous digi image from Tickled Pink Stamps. I printed Ice Skater Sookie onto Cryogen paper, then printed a mask onto Eclipse tape and cut it out. Then I began my scene. I started with the mountains from Sutter, then added the banks from Stampscapes. I created the little bushes on the banks by using just the tops of Maple Trio and Maple Pair. I colored the scene with my Copic markers then airbrushed the sky and edges to deepen the color. The last step was the framing elements top and bottom as well as the gulls all from Stampscapes. Finished size is 5 x 7 inches. Be sure to visit the Craft a Scene challenge blog for more inspiration and to join in on the fun.
