Gelli Print Sneakers!

Hello and Welcome,

I've  had this Woodware stamp "Sneakers" now for a couple of weeks and it's the first time I've used it.

I stamped the image onto my blank card in black Memento ink then coloured the soles with Promarkers.

 Using a small stencil and some Inspiration Crafts Starlight paint I stencilled parts of the background.

I stamped the sneakers again onto a small piece of a gelli plate print and cut out the pieces I wanted to use. stuck them onto the image on the card and coloured the laces with a white Sharpie pen.

The sentiment was then stamped into the empty area but as I felt something was missing I stamped the stars in black and added some glitter for a bit of sparkle then inked some Black Soot round the edge of the card to pull it all together.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Create and Inspire Challenge #43
A Bit More Time to Craft #17
Crafting From The Heart #106

  6. Oh Barb I love the combination of that sentiment and those sneakers, just brilliant. The colour combo on your sneakers using your gelli plate and white ink is fab. The stencil background just brings the whole card together and makes the sneakers pop.

  30. This is just a cute adorable card. I don't think I own a single shoe image, because I'd never know how to showcase it properly, and definitely not with the sneakers. You've turned this image into something very glamourous with the paper piecing that turned them into 'dressup', and I love that you used a gelli plate & stencil background. Well done, Barb! It's adorable. TFS & Happy wkend.
