If the shoe fits.


As you know I was thrilled to be asked by the design team at The Daring Cardmakers blog to be their guest designer for the month of April. This weeks challenge has been set by Sue and its called "If the Shoe Fits". Poor Sue is unable to craft alot at the moment as she has been having trouble with her eyes but she is keen to see what we all come up with for this challenge!
This is my DT card and as I didn't have any shoe stamps I looked on good old Google again, It always comes up trumps with some great images. After finding the drawing of the Vintage shoes I decided to take the route of making a vintage looking fashion card. I printed the shoes onto patterned paper and and as it left the printer I quickly embossed it with clear embossing powder to make the image shine. I had some lovely vintage sheets of paper in my stash and the image of the models also came from Google.
Hope you are having a great week, I am still on school holidays Yipee!! Must get in the garden though as the sun is shining.
