My BFF loves blue...and shoes...take her to a Dillard's shoe department and she briefly becomes someone I don't know. LOL
I purchased MFT's Window Shopping stamp set knowing how I would use it immediately. But I first made a red shoe card with the set; then it all came together in my head - make a blue set of cards just like the red card for my BFF; she'll be thrilled. Then when I saw Beate's tutorial on SCS for the box to hold A2 cards; I was all fired up and had a Christmas item ready for my BFF.
Here is the box I made; the base is SU! Brilliant Blue; the lid is SU! Very Vanilla stamped with Baroque Motifs in Vintage Creme from Papertreyink. I used the threading water punch on the lid and also accented the edges with SU! Close to Cocoa. I think the Close to Cocoa was a little dark; but overall, I was pleased with the box.
I then added 5 cards, all with various sayings from MFT's Window Shopping set. The black and ivory paper is handmade and was left over from some wedding invitations I did.
I colored the shoe with my Copics and Colorless Blender and the stand was colored with a silver pen I have - don't know the make....I have a few of these things just laying around. LOL
But I love the way the silver looks; almost as if the shoe is sitting on a mirror.
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to stop by SCS to check out the A2 box tutorial. Hugs, ~M.
