August Rudolph Days

For my entry into the August Rudolph Days Challenge I chose to use the Stampendous Ice Skates Stencil for my focal design and then backed it over a die cut background using the Taylored Expressions Snowflake Cover Plate.


I used white pigment ink to stencil the design onto the royal blue card stock and it was then that I noticed it was almost a true match to the lighter blue card stock I had on hand. So I used that lighter blue as the card base and then added the white snowflake die cut design over the top before I placed the ice skates design over that. I will be using this as a winter holiday card but for now I am leaving the sentiment off of it so that I can use it for any of the winter holidays if needed.

Thanks for visiting and for the comments. I wish you a wonderful new week.

God bless,
Verna

The tones of blues look really pretty and so does the skater die cut and the snowflake one. A very classy looking card Verna x.

What luck you had with the blue stenciled colour matching a card stock that you owned! That was great as it looks so good!

The snowflake background is fabulous.

Thanks for another great month of designing for The Rudolph Days Challenge.
