Shoes and More Shoes!

I Wish, I Wish!

Hello and hi!

This is a bit of a departure from my usual crafted cards. I used Polkadoodles digi images,
chosen primarily due to my lifelong and well-known love of shoes. I used a background paper from the ‘Winston’ collection, copied the sentiment ‘bags, shoes,’ to create a second background paper which was inked with Distress Worn Lipstick and Tea Dye then curled around a paintbrush handle on diagonally opposite corners. A Polkadoodles character was added along with shoes and boxes. The sentiment was outlined with a fine liner, dotted with a glue pen then glittered. An outline was scribbled around the perimeter of the base paper. A couple of presents with decoupaged bows from the collection were added to the base. More glue pen and glitter added to characters flowers and shoes and twine (customised by colouring with alcohol markers) attached to top right corner.
Et voila! Here we have ‘I Wish, I Wish!’

·         Polkadoodles Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Fruit Punch; Winston Kraft Paper
