Enjoy Friends

On August 1st, Crafter's Companion will be announcing some exciting news!! Please come back tomorrow to see what it is - there'll also be some blog candy - woo hoo!! :o)  

 The deign I'm sharing today was inspired by a shopping trip with my sister-in-law, Terry, years ago. First she encouraged me to buy an orange skirt, then Terry told me I had to have orange shoes to go with the skirt. I said to her, "what else can I wear these orange shoes with? Why would I buy one pair of shoes to go with one outfit?" Her response in a very confident tone, "we're women...that's what we do." And so, I bought  those orange shoes. 

I am  featuring images from  Camden Town EZMount Stamp Set - Female 2.  I stamped the classy shoe image onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock for Alcohol Markers and colored it with my Spectrum Noir Markers - OR1, CR7, CR8, CR10, IG7, IG9, IG10.  After coloring, I cut it out.

I found a brad in my stash that had the color stone I wanted to use, but was silver. I colored the silver with my black SN Pen.

I used Distress Ink pads and a blending tool with foam to blend color on a circle background for the classy shoe.

I also blended color on to the words I cut out with a punch. I used OR1 to fill in color on each letter. Now that is "girlfriend card" if I ever saw one! :o)

Here's a photo of all the SN markers I used today:

I like the idea of the brad. This shoe looks like it would be in your closet. The background you did works so well with the shoe.
