Blue Ice Skating

Here is a card I have been working on for my hubby for Christmas. I LOVE this Magnolia Image, Tilda and Edwin Skating. This image is just to die for, so cute!!!! Sorry the pics are a little dark. It is dreary rainy day here in So Cal, and the lighting is pretty bad. I asked Santa for one of those photo tent thingies, so hopefully, I will be able to start taking better pics of my creations for you all.
Anyway, I chose to sick with Blue and white, with touches of silver for this card. I used some patterned paper from my stash to layer.
I kept this card pretty simple, since it is for my hubby. No flowers, or lots of bling here! I did add a white silk ribbon that I just tied into a knot for an added element. Then I added silver gems to the corners and along the sentiment strip. The sentiment was printed on my computer, then I cut it into a banner strip.
I colored these cuties with copics -
Skin - E000, E00, R02, R20
Hair - Tilda - Y11, YR21, E53, E35 Edwin - E51, E57, E59
Edwin clothes - Shirt - W1, W3, W5 Pants - B91, B95, B97
Tilda Clothes - B0000, B00, B01, B02
Skates - W1, W3, W5, C3, C5
I added White Sparkly Fluff (LOVE this stuff) to the fur parts of both of their outfits. I also added Stickles to the ground to make it look like they were skating on ice.
I distressed the paper that the image is on with Stormy Sky Distress ink.
