Remember Rollerskates?

This SNB image brings my right back to my childhood in the 1970's and 80's, when my rollerskates were on my feet daily.  I actually stopped riding my bike for months at a time, and skated everywhere! And boy, did I LOVE the rollerdiscos! For a time my favourite movie was Xanadu (because of the music and skating)...

Ingredients:  Cardstock/Paper - Terra Nova, Dre8tiv, magazine freebie (paper); Stardust Pens - Sakura; Matte Gel Pens; Metallic Gel Pens; Rhinestones - Kaisercraft.

This is a 6x6 inch card. I flipped the image so that the heel is on the fold of the card.  The image is coloured with matte gel pens, and glitter pens, with metallic gels pens being used on the skates truck (I still remember the part names of the skate!) After fussy cutting the coloured image, I mounted it with foam tape to the paper and cardstock layers.  Orange rhinstones finish the corners!

You can find this image at the SNB Shop, and see other great creations on the SNB Blog...

This is entered in the Etsy Inspired Challenge #131 (this week was Dollybird's shop .... the colours and goodies there are amazing! Go See!) The colours inspired me ......

What fun! We didn't have roller discos near my place - summer vacation was always greatly anticipated because we stayed at (a horrible, dive of) a place near a roller rink! Love all the bright colours you used with it - very disco!
