National RAK Day Nov. 13...

Patty Skating can be found at
Random Acts of Kindness Day 11/13/15  
613 Ave C is celebrating this day with a challenge - it is actually an Anything Goes with the optional twist to make a RAK project.  There are two sponsors this go around:  AliciaBel and  Rick St. Dennis and therefore two prizes available!  You soooo need to see some of the incredibly great projects the designers created - do go check them out at 613 Ave C!

  • The focal image is 'Patty the Skating Girl' - generously provided by AliciaBel for me to use for this challenge.  Thank you!
  • For the focal image I used Paper Tole Technique to give her dimension. Printed 3 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the images.  The layers were both glued in some places & elevated in others with foam tape to achieve the desired dimension.
  • The sentiment on the front is from Stampendous.
  • Inside sentiment is Good Stamps Stamp Goods - remember them??


  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • A2 base card is Georgia Pacific.

  • The embossed Birch trees on the blue background was created by a friend and given to me to use - so I have no resource info on this one.
  • Patty's skate blades, her belt buckle and buttons were all blinged up using Duo Glue & Silver Foil.
  • Glossy Accents was used on her lips and the pupils of the eyes.  
  • Fence on the inside was created with a Martha Stewart punch.
  • The edges along the side of the pond were cut "Deckle" style and inked with a C3 Copic.
  • Copic Opaque White was used on the Iris of her eyes for a highlight.
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:

    1. Fabulous sentiment love the image and as always beautifully coloured Ginny x

    2. Fantastic card in every way; love the design, the 3D dimension of the stamp and your coloring . . . perfect as always!!! I like, too, that this is a winter themed card that is NOT Christmas. Too often winter is regulated to Christmas and that's it (a fact I'm guilty of as well).

    3. What a lovely charming card. Stunning colouring and love the background. Thanks for joining us over at TPS this week.
      Love n hugs

    4. Beautiful card. Love you coloring. She has that winter glow of pink cheeks. Love the way you did her eyes with the little lines and highlight. You are the master of red hair!

    5. This is so sweet, love your image and the background created. Totally relate to your reason for crafting, Ginny. Thanks for sharing with us on AYL

    8. What a fabulous image and it goes with that sentiment perfectly, and the background is fabulously wintry. It must have taken you ages cutting out that image with the tiny skates etc!
