Weekly Challenge -Week 9 - Touch of Red

Over at the Less is More challenge blog this week its week 9 already! I am amazed at how quickly the time is going this year. The challenge for this week is to use 'a Touch of Red' on a clean and simple card. I have struggled with this so far this week probably due to not feeling too good after having 3 of my front lower teeth out last Thursday due to a massive infection that has been there for ages... I haven't been able to concentrate on much at all.
... Anyway, today I do feel much better and decided to use one of my own free images 'If the Shoe fits' for this card.
Here it is
I used promarker pens to colour these with a glitter gel pen to add sparkle. I created the red gem using a red pearl pen sprinkled with glitter and then used a pearl pen to add the pearly accents around it. Here's a close up...
Scoring the lines under the shoes allows them to sit there instead of float on the card. I decided to use the lovely floral vine Martha Stewart punch to add decoration with some pretty silver crackle effect card beneath it. I finished it with a foiled greeting.

I hope every one here in the UK is enjoying the beautiful spring sunshine.. It really is welcome after the long dreary winter isn't it.

Thanks for visiting... see you soon..


  1. Hi Sylvie,
    I'm really sorry you haven't been on top form recently... dentistry can be very stressful, I've just a a bridge replaced at great cost and some discomfort, I had a final trip to the dentist for a(hopefully)final adjustment about half an hour ago.
    I hope that you're feeling back to normal very soon.
    This is a superb card, your images are wonderful and your cards are exquisite.
    Great to see you again. Chrissie
