Skate Tag

Well I saw this sweet tag over on Candy Colwell's blog  using Tim Holtz's new skate die . I don't have this die so browsed through my Cricut Carts. and came across a skate on the Joy of the Season cart. so I decided to give it a try  . I stamped various stamps from a few of my TH collection of stamps with Archival ink (coffee) then sponged with Fired brick & Pine Needles Distress Inks. The skates were cut at 21/2 in. out of Grunge paper and painted with TH picket fence distress paint ( love how the paints go on so smoothly ) . I used Metallic Silver paint dabber for the blades and then embossed with silver embossing powder. I laced the skates with some embroidery floss and then sponge very slightly with a the coffee archival ink . For the snow I used shabby white embossing enamel . Black and white bakers twine and some jingle bells completed by tag . Thank you Candy for inspiration . I'll be adding this tag to my tree .
I'm entering this is in :
