EVERY STEP

PRIVATE COLLECTION
Made this in response to the Arty Girlz Challenge which is to use black and white. It also works for the Step Outside Your Box challenge because it was VERY difficult for me to use only these colours, I kept wanting to use little hits of pink or something ... anything! Reasonably pleased with it in the end - the background is intended to represent cracked pavements (or sidewalks if you prefer)! The shoe stamp is one of my favourites by Paperbag Studios and I embossed it so that the shoes almost look like patent leather, except you can't see that in the picture. The leaves are another stamp by Inkadinkado, and I've water-coloured the sections. This is available to swap if you want it!

Clever stuff Rosie - I like the way the writing fits within the shoes and the pavement is brilliant.
The shoes certainly bring back memories - I wore a pair just like that to school!
