any one for ice skates?

Today im showing another of my cards that appeared on create and craft  with splodgeaway and it seems this one caused quite a stir in the shop, Sue sent me a message asking if the skates were a die, they are in fact cut on the cricut winter woodlands cartridge. ive promised i will cut a whole load out and take them into the shop for the girls to use.

The word ice is one of the new SplodgeAway masks and you can find it here (if its not there ring the shop they may not of updated the site yet), ive crumpled the card and inked it with a little touch of tumbled glass and a lot of walnut stain. The skates wre cut out of white card and i used promarkers to colour the lace, heel and blade, i then blended walnut stain over, i added highlights with a white POSCA pen, i would highly recomend this pen for using as a highlighter, i wouldnt be with out mine. i added a bow and a little hessian for texture, (if you want your organza ribbon wrinkled simply heat with a heat gun)
