Shopping Therapy

Perhaps I should get away from Hexagons for a while.

As I had to make a card for a friend who ' loves to shop' I thought that I would share this with you.

Go Shop in Style

Supplies: clearlybesottedstamps.com

Stamps 'It's Your Birthday' and 'Stepping Out'
Sentiment - 'Stepping Out'

There is a bit of masking to make this card.  I stamped an image of both the shoes on to a sticky note and cut around them.

Before I did this for real I practised on a piece of scrap paper to get the positioning of the shoes and gift boxes right.   Eventually, I felt brave enough to stamp the shoes on the piece of card - one  in Distress Ink  'Barn Door' and one in Momento 'Tuxedo Black'.

I then covered the shoes with the masks and stamped the boxes over the top with 'Barn Door' and Adirondack 'Butterscotch'.  When I removed the masks I was quite pleased with the result and thought that it had been worth taking the time with the fiddly bits i.e. cutting out masks.

The sentiment fitted nicely into the remaining space and all I had to do was to add a bit of bling!  I am not so sure about the yellow punched strip that I attached -  but then I am never satisfied!

Well, that is all for now

Thanks so much for visiting
