Happy Bank Holiday to everyone,
When Glenda issued the Design Team with this challenge I have to confess to a sinking heart, lol! This sort of thing is not normally my cup of tea at all but I decided to give it my best shot and guess what? ............... I had so much fun! I had no preconceived ideas of what I wanted to achieve, I just started with a particular paper or a set of stamps and let it flow and this is what I came up with.
For two of my shoes I changed the shape of the toe to a 'chisel'.
For this 'sandal' I printed Glenda's lovely paper design onto Sticky Backed Canvas which I then stuck to co-ordinating card before cutting out the pieces of the shoe. I then stamped different flowers from the Big Flowers set onto Grungepaper, cut them out, inked them with Distress Inks before shaping, layering and positioning on my shoe and finally adding some Stickles to the centres and petal edges and a few punched leafy branches.
For my second shoe I went back to the pointy toe (that takes me back to my teens I can tell you and it was a loooooooonnnnnnnggggg time ago, lol) and went for Parisienne Chic. I also gave my shoe a little heel.
I stamped just a small section of the Notre Dame Cathedral image from the Paris Secrets plate onto a 1" Stampbord tile and used this as an embellishment together with some trim I found in a charity shop from which I made the flower.
I stamped a dragonfly onto Angelina Fibres and repeat stamped the flower from Butterfly Daisy Collage to make the roses. I also used some wire stemmed flowers from my stash together with ribbons to create the little arrangements in and on the shoe.
I think I'm going to make one of these with a little tag inside instead of a birthday card for my Mum. It's just the sort of thing she will appreciate.
I hope you've enjoyed your trip around my little Shoetique and thanks for looking.
