Catching up !

I've managed to just finish this card in time for the Passion for Promarkers challenge and also for the Pink Elephant challenge. Passion for Promarkers challenge is girly and sparkly and the Pink Elephant challenge is one ribbon, 2 squares and something that sparkles. I really wanted to add another layer but restrained my self. The main image is a Clarity stamp that I've stamped onto the card once then stamped onto a Post It note and cut it out. This then sticks over the first shoe and masks it while I stamped the second shoe. I've then shaded them with green Pro Markers. I really wanted to do red but I've not got any Pro Markers in that colour so looks like that will be my next purchase ! The papers are all Basic Grey and I've stamped around the shoes with some stamps from a Basic Grey set I picked up last week. I've then sponged ink around the edge and swiped ink on the edge of the card instead of layering it onto a darker piece. The swirls on the green paper are from the Basic Grey set of stamps called Two Scoops and I've stamped it in Adirondack Lettuce. The edge is punched with a Martha Stewart edge punch and the gems are all self adhesive. The colours haven't come out too well as the greens are alot more vivid than in the photo.

I really wish my feet would fit into a pair of shoes like this....not much chance of that with my boats! Well it's back to work tomorrow, which is not a happy thought, but looking on the bright side if I didn't go I couldn't buy any craft stash......which is an even worse thought !

Thanks for looking.
