Blue Shoe Mojo

Hey, say that title fast and it sounds like a dish on a chinese food menu! LOL! 
When I finally sat down to stamp tonight at about 8:30pm, I looked at the colour challenge on Splitcoast (Not Quite Navy, Kraft, Baja Blue) and decided to make a card based on that and the Mojo Monday sketch challenge

I pulled out my Shoebag image from Stamping Bella cause I thought I could do a lot with the blues on it. Then my brain kicked into high gear...I've been wanting to give my Lyra pencils a little lovin', and wouldn't they show up beautifully on Kraft cardstock? Really...it was a question to myself cause this is only the second time I've used them. So I stamped the image with Memento black onto Kraft and coloured it with Lyra pencils, OMS and a stump. I did lots of layering and blending to get this result. I have to say, I'm quite pleased with it! I painted the bag with Angel Wings Shimmerz then added some Hero Arts gemstones. The image was cut out with circle nesties and layered onto a scallop of Not Quite Navy.

The card base is Kraft, then a layer of Not Quite Navy. The patterned paper is from the Making Memories Paperie line. I used just a smidge of Baja on the card...the little circles behind the white flowers from my SU Pretties kit. I finished off the flower centers with some shimmery blue jean dots from Stamping Bella. 

Mmmmm...shoes....can we ever have enough???  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
