Wishing you all the Joys that winter holds - Creative with Stamps #19

Sunday October 15-31, 2017
Well it's mid month reminder at
I hope you're having fun playing along and I love seeing different shoe -foot wear images..

If you follow me, I mentioned when I posted my shoe card for Oct. 1st.. I only had two shoe images. One I used on a card I created in the sprig and the tennis shoes on 10-1...and I needed to check over my stamps and see if I had anything else I could use... Well I had a pair of flip flops (thongs when I was a little girl many many years ago) and these skates.. So since it's not summer anymore I chose the skates.. Their not shoes but again shoes can be determined in so many ways.. heels, tennis, flats, boots, uggs, clogs, flip flops, sandles.... and skates.. sure there are a lot more..
So I stamped the Paper Trey skates all over the card base. I then took Simon Says snow flakes in three sizes and stamped them in the open spaces. I took my Kuretake Gansai paints and blended the pearl white with a very very small amount of black to get the silver and painted in the blade of the skate. I took my Zig marker and did a light wash over the skate. I added Nuvo drops to the center of the flakes. I stamped the Sentiment from Paper Trey Ink with Ranger and added it across the top. I took some Silver glitter washi tape and put a strip down each side. I then added foam behind the skate panel and added to the card base..  Christmas will be here before we know it.. Hum who will this card go to??

Fabulous idea for the shoe 'challenge', Billie! Love the design you created here.
PS: I wish I thought of using my one old, $1 Spot, wooden shoe-skate stamp ~ could have added to the winter/Christmas cards that I have to get-to-makin' :-D
