A shoe - but no card! PDCC#91

Sunday, July 24, 2011

Yes, this is something a little different for me.  I don't often create 3-D projects.  They used to frustrate me, maybe because cards are "my thing" - I guess I felt out of my element making projects.  Well, I've decided to push myself to try other things. least today.
Actually, I didn't get frustrated making this shoe.  I took my time (and it took a long time) and just enjoyed the process.  You know what?  It was fun.  And, I'm really pleased with the results!

This shoe is going into the Play Date Cafe #91 challenge.  Check it out!

Black and white with a splash of color - we get to choose the color, but use only a splash!  My splash is yellow.

This is what I created ~

I found the template for this shoe at Creating Keepsakes website.  They have so many great templates; you might want to check it out.  The link in the previous sentence will take you to the shoe template.
I added just a few embellishments to dress up my shoe a little.  What do you think?

patterned paper from the Black Orchid pack by s.e.i.
black woven scroll trim by Wright
yellow roses from my stash (from a long time ago, when I used to throw away the packaging.)
Aleen's paper glaze, Scor-tape
