wonderful wednesdays with...


Hello everyone! Francine here! I hope you had a fabulous Christmas! Did you get a lot of crafty gifts and stamps for Christmas? LOL


Today, I have a fun winter project to share with you featuring the Little Bits Figure Skaters. Here is what I came up with:



www.stampingbella.com:  rubber stamp used: Little bits FIGURE SKATERS and HOLIDAY SENTIMENT SET, card by FRANCINE VUILLEME



I decided to create a scene showing a reflection on the ice. This ice reflection stamping is a super fun and easy technique! I started by creating a mask for the skater using masking paper. I then stamped the skater in black ink on white cardstock and masked him. I also drew a horizon line to divide the iced surface and the sky. Next, I stamped the skater in black ink on a transparent sheet and I pressed the sheet onto the white cardstock below the skater (upside down) to create the reflection. I sponged the sky using various blue Distress inks and I removed the mask. I colored the skater as well as the reflection and the iced surface. I heat embossed the wonderful sentiment from the Holiday Sentiment set with white embossing powder. The white sentiment really pops against the blue background. I added a tiny orange heart for more cuteness. To finish off the card, I matted the scene on white cardstock and a blue card base.


I hope you enjoyed this technique! Let me know if you give it a try!


That’s all for me this year! LOL See you in January! I wish you all the best for 2018! Happy New Year!
