SHOES - Eeek! Now I'm not a fan of shoes, I live mainly in trainers or walking boots, it's comfort all the way for me you know LOL!
Mind you, I do have a bit of a thing about boots and I have got 7 pairs of varying styles and colour. The problem is, most of them are quite high heeled and, to be honest, I don't feel so comfortable in them anymore......it's an age thing you know!!
Anyway, when I read the theme for this week, my first thought was to rummage around for my fave pair of boots. Whilst rummaging LOL, I came across a pair of strappy shoes that I'd bought just before Christmas to wear to a couple of parties. I'd forgotten about them, typical, but when I wore them to the Christmas parties I remember thinking how nice they were and that I should wear them more often. Soooo, I reckoned that was a reason the use them this week.
Here's a pic of the front and back of the card:
For this card I wanted to try the splodged on paint look that I have seen on so many gorgeous LO's and I thought it would be an ideal time to try, I love the paint effect and I think I might even progress onto something a little larger next time HEE HEE!!
The thing I really like about doing these challenges are that you can try different techniques with confidence because if it doesn't go quite right the first time you've only messed up a tiny bit of card not a whole sheet of you fave, precious cardstock.
My mum bought me the little sparkly bits and when I got them I wondered what on earth I would use them for but they seemed to mirror perfectly the little spangles on the shoes, so cheers mum, another great find.
Right, off to do something creative.
Take care all
