Silhouettes - Ice Skaters

Good morning everyone,

It's Gina here popping in to share my creation for this week using the the beautiful Dutch Doobadoo A5 Paper Art Ice Skaters, Dutch Doobadoo Ice Skate stencil, Noor Design 8 Point Die, Vintage Flourishes Leaf die 2 and Dutch Doobadoo Structure Paste. I hope you like it. Links to the materials I have used are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.

The shape has been cut using the  Dutch Doobadoo Ice Skate stencil, which has been painted with chalky paint, stickles and crackle paint. Along the base and around the edges I have painted on some of the wonderful Dutch Doobadoo Structure Paste. For the shapes I have used some scraps from the Winter Wonderland paper pad.The skate is sat on a Joy craft card stand, I don't think Tracy currently has this in the shop, but she can get it for you if you would like one, which again I have painted it with chalky paint.

I have changed the colour of the Ice Skater by painting her with the Dutch Doobadoo  structure paste and then sprinkling glitter all over for a different affect.

Here I have used the Flourishes vintage leaf die 2 which has been sprinkled with White Shabby Frantage.

Sitting on top of the feathers is the Noor Design 8 point die, which I adore!

In the centre of the Ice Skate, I have cut a second  8 point die and sat another of the Ice Skaters from the Paper Art collection, but this time I have left it black, and covered it with glitter. On the left hand side is another of the skaters which has also been left black and glittered.

Also, there is a new release of goodies coming out, if you would like to win a surprise present, then leave a comment and Tracy will pick a random winner once she receives the new release. 

Thanks for popping in.

Take care.
