You've Got Style

Hi everyone!  I finally got inky today for no other reason than to get inky!  I just purchased some Verve stamps (I haven't purchased anything from them in a long time and they have a great anniversary sale going on!), so I wanted to use them.   I loved this set called Express Yourself.  I also puchased this die called Sweet Scallop die.  I loved the shape.  I stamped the shoe and sentiment on the tag with Versafine black ink and added some Wild Honey distress ink around the die to tame the white.  The dp is from My Mind's Eye called Mabel. 

The colors were inspired by this fabulous photo from the Runway Inspired challenge.  I used more of the black and orange than the white.  there is a bit of the blue in the paper I chose too that you see in her top.  The shoe also reminded me of the fashion theme of the photo.

The sketch is from this week's Sketchbook Saturday challenge.  I really loved this one!

That's it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by!
