Did you used to do this?

I love this 'Big Shoes' image from Mo Manning, I think she is one of my all time faves. It just reminds me of when I was a little girl and I used to like trying on my mums shoes. I managed to fall down the stairs in some of her high heels!! Luckily I don't think too much damage was done!


She is excellent for colouring and shading and I have coloured her in with my ProMarkers. The paper was from a freebie book of papers with my fave magazine - Cardmaking and Papercraft! Everything is matted onto kraft and distressed around the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink. Sentiment is from Pink Petticoat, pearls from The Hobby House and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.


Thanks for stopping by!!
