Whimsy ice skating ornament

Today I'm going to share a winter project that I made with one of my favorite Whimsy stamps.  The project was in the Whimsy Magazine issue 5 and I wanted to make sure I shared it here for any of you that haven't had an opportunity to visit the free magazine as of yet.  If you get an opportunity and a few minutes to yourself, grab a cup of joe and check out all of the wonderful tutorials, other than cards projects and new releases that make this online free magazine a special treat.

I was asked by a patron of a craft sale to make 5 of these in several different colors, unfortunately I neglected to take photos of them all.  I decoupaged this stamp but I can't wait to get my new Olba glue that is now available at the Whimsy Stamps Store, so I'm going to give it a try now that it is in the US!  Check out my friend Mariska's blog here for more information on the glue as I've never used it myself but she loves it and her creations are out of this world beautiful!

Challenges entered:
