It's time for another Crafty Boots challenge, and the theme this fortnight is Children's Stories or Nursery Rhymes.
Now, not having children I don't have a lot of suitable young stamp images so I was properly stumped for a while.... then happened to spy a packet of stamps in a box - 'Dance' by Sioux Jenneys for the Artistic Stamper - and my story was chosen!!
I don't remember reading Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfield, but I certainly remember the impact of it in the film You've Got Mail with Meg Ryan - I love that film!
I decided on a card - and some masking. The ink is the shaded lilac distress ink.
I had to do lots of practising with my masking as it's been a while since I did any, and experimenting with the colour for the ballerinas too! I knew it had to be something soft, but the squeezed lemonade wasn't right. I used the same ink to softly blend the edges of the card too, before mounting it onto a card blank.
Hope you enjoy this theme and come and join in.... we'd love to see you.
