Shoe Friends


This week at CAS-UAL FRIDAYS the challenge is to make text the focal point. I recently got the stamp set Fabulous You from Stampin' Up and I've been watching Frenchie at Stamp & Scrap with Frenchie create some wonderful projects using stencils, sponging, and inks. 
I wanted to keep the shoe understated so I stamped it and cut out the shoe to make may own stencil, laid it on card stock and sponged different in the spots to correspond with the flowers, butterflies, and leaves on the stamp. I used the Framed Tulip embossing folder to give the white space a little bit of umph. I stamped the sentiment in black and the little butterfly is in the same stamp set. I stamped it in black and colored it lightly with markers, cut it out and attached it in the top right corner for balance.

Happy Creating--
