Altered Pages challenge #9 Shoes

Hi Everyone, this is my entry for a Beautiful challenge at Altered Pages entitled 'Shoes'. Well I will be honest and say that I do Love them and have a few pairs. Ones I can walk in and ones that look great but I prefer to look at than go out in!  Anyway I digress, I thought it would be nice to make a little Vintage style hanging that I could pop in my bedroom, something really pretty and girly with a hint of shabby/altered Vintage style. I used a Digital kit called 'Not Too Shabby' by G&T Designs for the images some of the paper and shoes.
Arranged the images, word art and blended before printing.  From Altered Pages I used some 6 x 6 card, pearlised water colours and an ever so cute little crown from Leaky Shed that I painted and glittered. I cut out a piece of cardboard and distressed the edges with Vintage photo ink. Once dry painted on glitter gel for girly sparkle. Inked the edges of the 6x6 paper and then glued on. Cut out the shoes and imaged paper arranged and then attached the little crown. On the reverse side added a ribbon loop. I also printed a little double sided insert for a key ring that matches the theme x

Heather! This is stunning! HaveI told you how much I admire your work? Te fact that you do digital amazes me(i think i say that every time :) )!
You really did make a gorgeous piece that you will actually use! I say that because I often wonder what to do with some things after I make them!
Totally awesome! Thanks for playing with us!!
