The red shoes

Being the first week of the month, we're back to a colour challenge on Less is More - this week it's a touch of red.

I had an immediate idea of which stamp I wanted to use but didn't get chance to do it yesterday. When I saw Paula had used a Wizard of Oz theme I almost changed tack but the stamps are new so I really felt it would be rude not to ink them up, right?

I've had a couple of cards published recently using Crafty Secrets stamps and they have a brand new rewards program which means you're in with a chance of claiming a $30 gift certificate for a published project - I chose the new Wizard of Oz set as part of my reward program spending, thank you Sandy and all at Crafty Secrets!

The shoes were stamped on red and again on kraft and then paper pieced. I used a Spica pen to give them some shimmer and the bows have had the Glossy Accents treatment. Other than that it's a couple of punched circles, a stamped sentiment and some tiny acrylic nail art gems with a doodled border - all done!

Stamps:
Wizard of Oz (Clear Art Stamps by Crafty Secrets)

Paper:
White
black
red
Kraft

Ink:
Versafine by Tsukineo (Onyx Black)

Other:
Squeeze punch by Fiskars (large circle)
Nail art gems
Spic glitter pen (red)
Glossy Accents by Ranger
Copic fineliner (to doodle the border)


Thanks for stopping by!
