Creative with Stamps Challenge – Shoes


Hi all, its a new month and a new challenge over at Creative with Stamps! This month’s theme is “Shoes” and it was a difficult one for me as I don’t really like shoes. WHAT! Don’t like shoes??? I can hear all you ladies out there yelling in shock and disbelief! Well to be more precise, because of a back problem and arthritis in my knees due to a ski injury, I can no longer wear heels or any shoes that are not 200% comfortable. So only sneakers and certain low heeled shoes are possible for me 😭 . So I don’t own any shoe or shoe related stamps either as its too painful for me to look at beautiful shoes knowing I can’t wear them!

So I did something I never do, I looked for digis, and came upon a site called Buzzle, which has free printable colouring pages. When I saw this beautiful flower shoe, I fell in love with it, printed it and started colouring it immediately with my Prismacolor pencils and Zig clean color real brushes. I then fussy cut it and adhered it to a light blue Hero Arts card base and proceeded to stamp the little flowers from Pink Fresh Studio Unicorn Dreams stamp set with VersaMagic pigment chalk ink.

Isn’t the Flower Shoe gorgeous? I stamped the sentiment, Beautiful, which comes from Altenew Perennial Beauty stamp set, with Versamark and heat embossed it with Wow’s blue embossing power. You can’t see it in the pic but it really shines!

Well I hope you’ll go over to the Creative with Stamp challenge blog and leave my fellow DTs some love too, and join in the fun! Thanks for stopping by and I love reading your comments.

  3. Don’t worry, my dear, I am right with you! I don’t wear heels either.. not because of any injury, but because I just don’t know how to walk with them!! 😀
    But your card has come out pretty spectacular! Love it!
