Crafty Gals Corner challenge #81 - Christmas in July

It's time for a new challenge on the Crafty Gals Corner blog

Challenge #81 Christmas in July

This week our sponsors are Karleigh Sue, All Dressed Up and Bugaboo.

I have used the cute Christmas Heels digital stamp from Bugaboo Stamps.

My card is 5" x 6 1/2"
... yes, it's a strange size, normally it would be 5x7"
but I didn't want to mat the 6 1/2" patterned paper.

 Here is a close-up pic to show the glossy finish to the "leather" of the shoes and the sparkle of the pretty lining.  I coloured the shoes using a Copic marker (R46) then smoothered the red portions with Glossy Accents.  The lining was coloured using a Clear Wink Of Stella Brush.  The holly of the shoes and sentiment were initially coloured with a Copic Marker (G46) then coloured again with Wink Of Stella Glitter Pens in Dark Green, Green and Light Green.  The "metal" tip to the heel was coloured using a Mont Marte Metallic Fine Liner.  Once everything was dry, I fussy cut out the image, went around the edges with a black marker, then attached to my card front using foam dots.
