Click your Heels Dorothy

Evening Everyone.
Another fabulous class at Davina's today, very quite though, they were all colouring in.
I took along an assortment of stamps including this fabulous shoe from Stampendous. How I wish I could still wear something like this, it is awesome.
I spent many years walking everywhere in 4inch heels. Backwards and forwards to the school three or four times a day with the children, most of the time pushing either a double buggy or a wheelchair. And now I can't even manage court shoes for more than an hour. The joys of getting older lol.
I coloured the image with a combination of Watercolour Pearlex and some red ink. I also added some glossy accents which I was too impatient to let dry before I took these pictures :O)
I sorted through my stash of bits to find some things that would go with the 'Steampunk' feel of the card and these were the best I could do.
The background has been made using a Dreamweaver Stencil, Gold Brilliance ink and some Gold Embossing Powder.
I also sponged the panel with Distress inks and then spritzed over it with a couple of Glimmer Mists. I covered the whole panel with scrunched up cling film and left it to dry which gave added texture to the background.
It is a shame that I didn't get to finish this earlier in the week as it would have been an ideal advertisement for the fabulous Making Texture Collaboration blog hop that has been going on between Stampendous/Woodware/Dreamweaver.
So many fabulous ideas using items produced by three fabulous companies.
Don't forget to change your clocks.
One hour less sleep tonight, now that is definitely something I could do without.
Still I suppose it shows that Spring is finally with us.
Get a good nights sleep. See you again tomorrow.

  1. Hello Kim,
    This is fabulous, great colouring of the boot.

  2. Absolutely fabulous card Kim and yes, it would've been perfect for the collaboration. I'm impressed you were able to run errands in 4 inch heals. Me and heals sadly don't get on and never have lol. Enjoy the rest of the weekend! xx

  3. You did a fabulous job matching up the gear stencil to the Stampendous shoe, love it! :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message, it is always greatly appreciated. I will try and get back to you as soon as possible if you have a query
