Shop for shoes ....



... Good afternoon everyone - only one more day of our long weekend holiday - to go.  We've really been making the most of our time off.  Eating - obviously, and I'm going to have to be very creative with turkey recipes in the coming weeks :)  Friday evening we all went to a photo shoot with the lovely Andrea - I'll post some photos soon.  And today we even did a little shopping - glad we saved it until today.  The shops were very quiet first thing this morning!  After we got in, Jonathan watched some football - NBC show the UK Premier League games - I think he actually sees more games here than he did in the UK!!  Kathryn beat Pokemon - she was delighted.  And I played in my craft room and made a fun little card:

Shop for Shoes - Photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Docrafts - Born to Shop Shoes
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Spellbinders - Reverse Wonky Rectangles (S4-307) #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Clear Embossing Powder; Copics - R17, R14, G24, G20, BV02, BV04, B12, B14, R81, R83, R0000, W1, W3, W5, W7, Y13, YR23, YR27


The cue word for this week's CASology - CAS72 is SHOP.  As soon as I saw that word I knew which stamps I'd be using - I've had them for quite a while and they don't see ink as often as they should.  There are a number of really fun images that are perfect for this challenge.  I used the sketch from this week's CAS - Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#52, but I turned it through 90° as the layout worked better in this orientation.  I stamped the image on to some scrap white card, heat embossed it with clear powder and cut it out with a die.  I coloured the image with Copics and edged the image with R17.  I made the shoe border by repeatedly stamping the shoes, embossing them and colouring them in.  I made the vertical strip by colouring some scrap card with R17 and cutting a piece to size.  The inside is simply a mat of white card that has been edged with the red R17 Copic.  I've left it blank to add a message.  I've a feeling this might find its way to my Mum - she just LOVES to shop!!!

Well, that's all for now - I think I'm going to try and do a bit more crafting, but for now I'm off to make a coffee and read my book - I'm reading Dragons Dawn by Anne McCaffrey - I think it's the third time I've read it, but it is a wonderful place to visit!  See you soon.

I think the card is very cute and love the stamp and the "wonky" die cut.

Very cute! I like how you've created separation between the image panel (love that shape, by the way) and the background by edging the panel with the marker, rather than by adding a mat. Thanks for playing along in our sketch challenge this week at CAS - Colours and Sketches!
