This is another one of those pesky cards that are difficult to photograph.

 I stamped the skaters (October Afternoon) onto acetate and coloured from the back with alcohol pens and OHP pens. Then I paper pieced onto the front for their coats. I half-stuck them onto a panel that I raised from base card with 3D foam, so they are kind of floating (or hopefully, skating!) in front.

The paper scraps are all Basic Grey and the sentiment is by Crafty Individuals.

I originally made this card for the Artful Times acetate challenge, then realised that after I'd chopped it about it didn't quite fit the brief! (Originally this was a layer of acetate).

I'd like to enter it for :
Crafty Ann's Christmas in August/ Winter Olympics
Winter Wonderland   winter sports

    Using acetate for the skaters image is such a fab idea.
