Hi there. It is QKR Stampede Thursday here on my blog. Today I wanted to share something NON-Christmas with you. I figured we have seen lots of Christmas lately, so I went with a whole different idea. I wanted to use this gorgeous Ballet Shoes image today. I have 3 little girls, so there is a lot of pink, and dancing that goes on in my house. My middle DD takes ballet lessons, so I thought this image was just perfect for her. Here is what I came up with this time. I started by stamping the Ballet Shoes image on white CS, and coloring with water color crayons. I added some Smootch Pearl to the ribbons on the shoes and around them. Then I fussy cut them out...which was not easy with 2 little girls hanging over me saying "Don't break them mom" or "Be careful mom". I used a white CS base, and layered the PP from Imaginisce onto it. I just picked up this PP the other day at my LSS. I just loved it...super girly! I layered the ballet shoes onto that, and then added some pink letter stickers for the word dance. I added some pink stickles to the letters for sparkle. The heart border along the bottom is one of the things I got from my 12 Days of Christmas Crop a couple weeks ago. Now the ribbon! Oh I just love this ribbon! I was checking out the blogs for the Creative Belli Challenge the other day and saw one of the entries used this ribbon "trick". I just had to try it right away. It reminded me of laced up Ballet Shoes. I used a punch for the edge of the CS. Then I laced the ribbon through and tied a knot at the top. I just love the way this looks. will be seeing it It is super easy, and looks so neat!
Well that is all for now. Thanks for stopping by!
