Yesteryear and Shoes!

This week Wendy has set the Tanda Teaser and her theme for this challenge is "yesteryear". For my card I've come slightly more up to date than Wendy, all the way to the 1920/30's, don't you think the fashions then were beautiful?!

I stamped the ladies (Artistic Stamper) and shoes (also Artistic Stamper) in Pumice stone Distress Ink and then coloured the images with Copics. The shoes were great as they mean I can enter this into the Shoe challenge over at "Tuesday Taggers" too! I also added a bit of glitz to the girls with Sakura Gelly Roll, Clear Star. This is a great way of adding a bit of glitz, it's subtle...shame really coz you can't see it in the pictures.

The flowers were coloured with Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet Distress Inks and then I brushed them with pearl medium. I bought the leaves at the Stamp Attic so that's another product from the Wantage trip used.

Prom Dress is coming along..just have to hem the underskirt and hem the main dress...will post a piccy when I have time!
