Well, I don't have any Chuck Taylors anymore, but I had a pair of hot pink ones when I was in high school (to wear with my pegged jeans or black and white polka dot bubble skirt). I married a guy with a pair of old black Chucks, and and when you combine that DNA together, what do you get? Bright blue baby Chucks, of course (can you believe it took me grad Biology classes to deduce that?).
So I'm playing along with the Summer Card Camp's color challenge this week and paired it up with the Cards blog challenge, and this is what I made:
This card was inspired by Jaclyn's pictures of Fancy Pants's new line at CHA (see her pics here).
I have the digital Cosmo Cricket Candy Candy from The Boyfriend line, and this shoe is one of the digital elements. I resized, recolored (it was a red and cream shoe beforehand...hope I'm not violating anything by changing it!), flipped the image, and then printed it. Okay, I printed it twice since I didn't have the color right the first time.
Next, I punched holes where the eyelets are, and I laced Honeydew and Peapod twine from the Twinery. I rolled tape on the end of the twine, which really looks like a shoelace end. If you look, you can see I alternated which twine was on top (because I'm pretty neurotic):
The fabulous sentiment is from the Pocket Full of... KOM from Unity, which I stamped and embossed. Finally, I traced the shoe and added a light blue shadow with a Copic (had to get that light blue color in for the Summer Card Camp challenge). I think the card could work for a guy or a girl.
Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
