It's A Girl Thing...

Challenges

Lili of the Valley (30) - Paper Piecing

Creative Card Crew (15) - Black plus Other

This is another of Jak heath's gorgeous shoes. This time I have printed it twice, once onto white paper and once onto red paper, and then pieced the two together. I also printed the backing paper onto red paper but it looked too overpowering and dark so kept to the black and white. The decoration on the front of the shoe is a button with a gem in the centre. I coloured the flower to match with MLP pens and added a gem. I finished off with a ribbon and added another gem to the bow.
