Less is More Challenge Week 130

The inspiration over at  Less is More  this week  is a beautiful image of a pair of very glamorous black shoes.  I am not sure that I was ever able to wear shoes quite as daring as these but I do remember the days when I squeezed my feet into a pair of very pointed stiletto heels but those days are long gone - the flatter the better now!

Anyway, I have managed to come up with something vaguely like the image and for once I happen to have the appropriate stamp which is quite a change for me.

This is the result . . . . .

                      You can never have too many

Supplies: Clearly Besotted Stamps
Stamps sets - ' Stepping Out' and  'Building Blocks'
Sentiment - 'Stepping Out'

The stripes are stamped in Black Memento Ink on to a square piece of white card and 
then mounted on to the black card with foam pads.  I then stamped the shoe in black, cut it out and positioned it with foam pads.  It was then finished off with some red pearls - and of course the sentiment.

This actually looks better in real life as it has a 3D effect but unfortunately I could not  show this very well in the photograph - think I will have to go on a photography course!

It is raining here at the moment I must say that it is a nice change to feel a bit cooler!

That is all for now.
