Big Shoes

Morning all you lovely craft buddies.

A big thank you for all the lovely comments I received for my first card as a GDT member for Papertake Weekly Challenge.  I am thoroughly enjoying the experience and viewing some wonderful creations. 
The Challenge this week is sponsored  by The Stamp Fairy with a fab prize of a £10.00 gift certificate. The theme is Strawberries and Cream – a card in Red/White or Cream or something that reminds you of summer. 

  I found this image Big Shoes whilst visiting Mo’s Digital Pencil and just had to have it - isn't she gorgeous.  I can remember dressing up in my mum’s high heels when I was a child and the summers being so hot that the heals would to sink into the tarmac. Don't think that's likely to happen this year do you!!!

Big Shoes

I started with a card blank from Craftwork Cards
The papers are a mixture of Raspberry Road (Wild Strawberries) and NitWit Collections (with this ring). I coloured the hearts with the red Pro Marker to match the image as they were originally to pink.  

The circular die and the butterfly are from Memory Box. I purchased these from Oyster Stamps but they are available from many online stores. 
I have coloured the image with Pro Markers. The reds are Red and Burgundy. I have used a Prismacolor Premier pencil in non photo blue for the shadow around the image.

The stamp Big Shoes is a digi image available at Mos digital pencil so the sentiment has been computer generated. If you buy the rubber stamp the sentiment comes with it.

I have entered this card into the following challenges.

Hi Sharon, what a gorgeous card! I do love Mo's images, they are an absolute joy to colour, aren't they! And you've coloured this one perfectly.

Great die-cuts as well.

Know just what you mean about blog backgrounds - I changed mine loads trying to find one I liked. Ended up just leaving them all off, I'll find one one day!


PS - Glad you liked the kittens, want one???!!! ;-)
