Talented Trio for PP266

October 15, 2015 1 Comment

I enjoy playing a couple of challenges most weeks as it gets me to use my tools and supplies a little differently than I might otherwise.  When I originally looked at the challenge that was the basis for today’s creation with Talented Trio, I thought I’d never come up with anything.  I let it roll around in the attic for a while until inspiration hit.  It can be like that for me — one thing perking while I’m creating something or working on something else.

Here’s how I combined Talented Trio with PP266

The girls in Talented Trio are soo cute!  I decided the skater was perfect for the challenge and the coming season.  I had to use Cucumber Crush, Real Red and Crushed Curry.  That was a bit of a head scratcher for me initially.

I used the Thick Whisper White cardstock for the base and added a layer of Cucumber Crush.  The Whisper White focal layer was cut to leave just a smidgen of Cucumber Crush border.

I stamped my ice skater in Smoky Slate so as to leave a very light outline.

Then using my ink pads and Blender Pens, I colored her in being sure to leave lighter bits of color to create texture and shadowing.

After she was colored to my satisfaction, I pulled out my Two Way Glue Pen and drew a shadow and two trails with glue.  Before it dried, I sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds.  I think it gives the illusion of ice.

And I’m not sure if you can see them, but there’s a sprinkling of clear Metallics sequins that add more subtle shimmer.
