Dancing shoes...

for my two little great nieces.... Last week I finally got my Simon Says parcel that included a Penny Black transparent set called "Tiny Wishes" so I was able to make these....

Chelsea's shoes
 For Chelsea

Sophie's shoes
For Sophie

I followed Cathy Androniou video (here) to make these.  They are so easy to do.  You stamp onto tissue paper and colour with Copics.  It is awesome as you can reverse the images and they are just as bright as the front.   I followed Cathy's colours on Chelsea's shoes but went for yellow and orange flowers on Sophie's.  I did slip-ons for Sophie as she is nearly 6.  I had so much fun doing these... I think there will be a few more pairs done in the future months.   A big thanks to Cathy for sharing this project with us.

An update on my cold .... slowly getting better... still coughing a lot but a visit to the doctor's resulted in a course of antibiotics.  Hope this will be the cure.  It is very tiring, all this coughing.  

Have a great week..
Dawn

Thank you so much again for Chelsea's shoes, they are so gorgeous. Sophie's are awesome too. You did such an amazing job on them. Hopefully the AntiB's get rid of your cough really quickly. xx
