Punky Challenge 43 - Those FABULOUS shoes!

HALLO my good people!
Michelle here with a FABULOUS new challenge!
Get a load of THIS:
BOOYA!!! I LOVE the tiny bit of green on the heel! TRES FAB!

Show us what you got Team B!

I used a Pink Paislee Core Impressions paper I've been hoarding for a while. Chevrons are so awesome!
When I saw the photo I immediately thought of feminine and green. I tried the water, glue and glitter splatters trick
but it's not as pretty when using chunky glitter- will have to locate fine glitter because I really loved doing this. Also- I think a different glue would have dried clear- this was Modge Podge and it still shows a bit.
I LOVE the print on the shoe but couldn't find my skullies- darn! Next time!


I kind of like shoes... So obviously this picture spoke to me! I took a picture of my favourite summershoes last summer. Not very glamorous, I know, but they are soo comfortable! :-) I used the colours on the shoe and added some purple. I stamped the flowers with a Penny Black stamp, and used punchinella as a stencil. Lots of stickles on the roses to increase the glamour...


This shoe said "drama" to me, so I focused on that, and the green. :) This photo is from 1999, when I was performing an opera scene. A really nice man who was watching our dress rehearsal, came up and shot this photo, and then sent me a copy. I love how he caught me all sprawled out on the floor in a flowy gown, with that super dramatic look on my face. So I titled it "My Diva Moment"
The papers are Cosmo Cricket from this month's Jenni Bowlin kit, and the grungeboard swirl is Tim Holtz "Harlequin. I used gaffer and tissue tapes, and plenty of splatter (which was a random decision) with distress stain and acrylic paint. The leaves are from the Michaels floral department, and I shaped them using hot glue and my heat gun.

The shoe itself inspired me. With the flowers and romantic feeling of high heels, I created this page. I specifically did a photo shoot of my dh and I on our 2nd Anniversary of 8 years (we got married on Feb 29th), focusing on our shoes for this challenge. This page isn't my normal "punky" side, but I just went with it. I still did a lot of distressing, masking, inking and used some steampunk elements.


This rockin' cool high heel made me go for colors, feeling and details. I love my fluorescent colors - just look at this green together with the stamped, stenciled and painted black as well as the painted grey and the small details in white. You cannot cover up such a lovely dazzling color so I inverted the colors in the shoe pattern for my layout.

Colors? Obviously!
Skull? A must for me!
Roses? Well, they are there too!
Punk? Always!
Rock? Yes, it's party play time!
Naugthy or Nice? My lips are sealed...

Now you! What does that GORGEOUS color palette, sexy shape or print inspire in you? We wanna see what you came up with by March 31st. Hit us up using Mr. Linky on the upper right corner there. And leave a comment- the DT LOOOVES hearing your attitudinal missives.
