Less is More - 130 Pinterest Inspiration

Less is More this week has a Pinterest Isnpiration challenge and here it is. Beautiful shoes but no way could I wear them!!



I don't have any shoe stamps so decided to use the tall heels and black and white as my inspiration, and this is what I came up with.

I paper-pieced the dress and hat with some black stripey paper and added a narrow black edge to the stamped panel. This is the second attempt. The first one didn't have the Eiffel Tower in the background but I decided to add it after I had put it all together. bad mistake ! As the panel is raised it didn't stamp properly so I had to start all over again! I added a little scribble of grey promarker to "ground" the lady as it looked as if she was floating in mid air, now she looks as though she's standing in a puddle - lol!! The stamps are from Clarity stamps. The stripey paper and black card are from my scraps box so I'm going to head over to Pixie's Playground with it as well.
