Skate, Spin, Soar!

Hey, it's Angie. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. Ours was wonderful....filled with my kiddo's and some amazing friends. Now it's time for cabin fever to kick in....and that being chased with spring fever. So our challenge is something pertaining to winter blues. I have a friend who's daughter has fallen in love with ice skating. So I thought that I would make her a wall hanging for her room. I got excited because I used my "celebrate with flourish" for the first time. (Even more exciting Jen didn't have to help me with the little details!)
This is the first of 2 skates cut. I cut them at 3 in...in misc. blues and white. I didn't like how plain they looked so I "glammed" them up.
I used my heat embosser and powders to make them sparkle...add a sparkly gem and there you have it. For the saying I talked to her Mama and we came up with "Skate, Spin, Soar" I used the storybook font on my gypsy and welded them together.
I started to put the sign together and it needed something more. I used plain white doilies and some alcohol inks as a mat for my skates.
Now for the assembly. I used a dark piece of blue cardstock. I inked the edges white to give it a frosted look. I also went against the normal and set it at a diamond instead of a square. When I started putting the pieces together I realized the words needed a bit more so I embossed them with a light blue powder and used a silver alcohol ink to give it a bit of a pop. I placed them all and then put them into a white frame.
I didn't like the plain white frame so I again pulled out alcohol inks in blue and silver and spruced it up a bit....so here is the finished project.
So there it is....my wall plaque. Get out and do something keep to fight those blues. recipe cricut cartridges...celebrate with flourish, story book Tim Holtz alcohol inks....blues and silver misc. papers in blue and white. heat embossing powders....blues and white 12 x 12 scrapbook frame

Love the wall plaque. Love the alcohol inks on the doilies and that you blinged out the skates with your heat embosser. Great job Angie.
