IDOS Winter Card Olympics Challenge #3 - Ice, Ice, Baby!

Ok Card Olympians, let's get frosty!! For this challenge, we want to see some ICE! Jana's favorite ice on cards is iridescent ice and the faux diamond dust technique. We'd love to see YOUR favorite ways to include ice or snow on your cards!

Head over to I Dream of Stamping Challenge #3 with your Icy entry before 5pm PST on February 28th for your chance to win the Paper Pretties stamp set S.W.A.K.!!

I used the adorable stamp, Building Snowman Maya from La-La Land Crafts. I stamped it with Tuxedo Black on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I used Copics to color the image. A "frame" was punched out with a square punch. I used this frame over my stamped image and used my VersaMark ink pad to ink up the open area (over the stamped image). Then I poured Iridescent Ice all over it. Here's what it looks like before I heated it up:

Then I heated it up until it looked like this (I think I may have overheated it a bit):

Here's my final card and a closeup:

Come play along with us!
