Winter Sports ATC collection

Hi guys,

Here is my new ATC collection, based around winter sports. The challenge for this collection was to use newsprint on the cards.

Each of these cards uses foil embossing which I have had for a while but never got round to using (both the foil kit and the embossing stencil), and has a calendar style sentiment.
This collection is being entered for the following challenges;
CASology 129 NBUS (Never Been Used Stash)
papertake weekly It's all new (technique and unused stash)
simon says stamp wenesday It's a guy thing
creative corner Sports Fun
Deep Ocean #95 Winter Dreams
audsentiments #123 Anything Goes
quirky crafts #1 CAS
live and love crafts #31 Winter sports

ATC #1 - Skiing

This card is on a blue base with the newsprint making the slope for the skier to sit upon, and the sentiment made with peel-off letters

ATC #2 - Ice-Skating

This card uses a green base with the ice-skater pirouetting on an ice puddle made of newspaper, with the sentiment pieced together with newsprint.

ATC #3 - Ice Hockey

Using a Kraft base card with an angled top, the ice hockey player was cut as a square rather than close-cut as the others were, allowing me to add a newsprint puc to the image. Rub-on letters were used on newspaper to create the sentiment.

Thank you for looking
