Christmas Gift - Winter Home - Decor

Hi Crafters (:o)

I know, it's a little bit quiet in my craft - room....but it's tis time of the year when i have to work most. Right now i'm helping out as sickness cover and i be away on business 12 hours  a day.
Not much time for crafting left.... as i'm mostly falling asleep on my couch when i'm at home

...but..

i've created some winter decor as a christmas gift. A pair of ice skates to be precisely. Challenge #4 at The Mirror Crack'd is asking for Recycle/ Upcycle or a Christmas Gift +  DT Call



I started with a template of a boot and wire



I tried to form some *blades*



Cut boots from copper foil and another pair for the back from cardboard


Paint boots as shown. Start with black and white Gesso...



...followed by Media Fluid Acrylic Paint black and white



Seal with Media Matte Medium
Paint the cardboard for the backside the same way.


I stamped on the front with Archival Sepia....


..and i stamped the same flourish with black StazOn on the back


Embossed by hand




Use sandpaper on the front to reveal the embossed area


Round up the foil a little bit at the edges with a spoon


Glue down the *blades* with hot glue and the foil boot on top


Cut off excess of cardboard


Cut holes and embellish with some satin ribbon



Thanks for stopping by my friends and leaving your always appreciated comments (:o)
