Doesn't every woman 'Love Shoes'
I sure hope you do 'cause Lisa is Hosting our
Latest Challenge over at Just Us Girls 
choosing just that as it is Word Week!
We have a new Guest Designer for September.
Welcome Linda from
 Lovely to have you join us this month.

I just love the awesome STAMPlorations Groovy Shoes
stamp set I used here.
I heat embossed  my image in black
then adding Brusho's in Brilliant Red & Black.
on water colour paper.
I wanted something a little different - bold and dramatic
and remembered I had some brightly coloured
Gelly Plate Pulls that I had made when my friend Cheryl
came to stay a while back.
I backed my shoe with red card stock, popped it
onto a cut out piece of the gelly plate pull.
It is a shame I couldn't get the silver metallic paint
I used to show up on the photograph as it really looks fabulous.
Again I framed it with red great and onto black card base.
Added a touch of silver splatters,WOS to the shoe sole
and a girl needed some bling on that groovy shoe.
The sentiment is also from the stamp set above.

Don't forget to pop over to Our Blog to check out
more shoe inspiration from our September Guest
Linda and the Team -  come join us this week.
You could just be chosen as Chic of the Week
and then be in the running for
Guest Designer in November.

Thanks for dropping in. Love reading your comments!

What an adorable image and the way you showcased it is so creative, SS. That gelly plate bg is stunning...and I see the depth and texture the silver created.

Such a fun artsy card Ina! My sisters all wore those platform shoes back in the day! Great job!

Verna Angerhofer said...

Awesome card design. I love that shoe image a lot.

Kathy Krug said...

Well this card is certainly groovy. Love the background you created and then carried the colors onto the shoe. Placing the shoe askew is perfect for the sentiment.
