Olympics Sochi 2014

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to make a Olympic mani to support my country :) Ofcourse I had to use orange (our national color) and our Dutch flag and since the Dutchies are very good at speed ice skating I had to do something with ice skates but since I don't own any of those images I had to improvise LOL (see details below).  

Base Barry M multiglitter 333 and a sponged accent nail in the Olympic colors (Konad SN blue, SN yellow, SN green and SN red). Konad SN white sponged tips and sponged over that with Konad PSN psyche orange.  Stamped the Sochi Olympic logo from MJ XXIV tester plate in Konad SN black. Stamped the rest with Konad SN white. Made the medal with the part of the pink ribbon image on FUN1 and Cheeky CH48 using Essence A Piece of Forever. For the ice skating guy I used part of an image on MJ XXIV tester plate and gave him skates using a dotting tool and part of the helicopter image on FUN1. I also did not had a big ice skate so I used the roller skate on MJ XXV removed the wheels and again used a dotting tool and stamped part of the helicopter from FUN1 to make it look like an ice skate haha :)The cheering guy is from MJ XXIV tester plate too. Made the Dutch flag with stripes from FUN7 stamping them all seperately using Konad SN red, SN white and SN blue.

I find it fun to look at the plates I do have trying to think of what I can use to make a certain image...always very challenging. The result ain't perfect but it was still fun to do :)

Our small country already won 12 medals with ice skating.

Thanks for reading.
