If the shoe fits!

So I was totally inspired by Colleen today, with her ostrich dress up card, I hadn't pulled out my girl "Olivia" from "Jumping for Joy" in a long time! if you have this image, you've probably blinged her up before, I've made some little shoes and accessories for her too, but Colleen's card made me think, "you know, I wonder..." so I pulled out my "A Charmed Life" set...and this was not planned AT ALL but the shoes are a perfect fit LOL!!! Those spike heels make her legs look GOOD, no? Instead of trying to mask I just trimmed them out, cutting off the little jump ring part of the image, and I did NOT cut the space ins between the shoe and the heel out, if you stamp it on white and your background is white, no one will notice that part is not cut, the heel is just too delicate, don't want it falling off while she's on the run, do we? hee hee! The heart charm I stamped first and then drew in the little loop for a necklace, in that order you don't have to worry about stamping it exactly onto the chain.



This uses Donna's sketch for the week over at Stamp TV, have you been playing these?? The DP is from Emily's "Rich and Shabby" Digi pack, CS is Gina K Pure Luxury White and Black Onyx. I used my last two flowers from the "Floral Frenzy Kit" , stamped with the crackle pattern from the Bold Flowers which is also in the kit in Antique Linen distressing ink (used that to sponge around the ostrich mat as well) Sentiment is from "A Charmed Life", too. Image is colored with Copics.



I hope this card inspires you to look at the images you already have and see how the charms in this set can bring new life" and options to some of your favorite stamps!



Have a great day!

This is a great card and I love how you incorporated a former stamp. It is great to use older sets and to remember to include them when we get excited about new sets. Thanks for explaining what came from where and incorporating so much into this card.
