February Stampsmith Challenge: Photo Inspiration

Hi Dreamers!
Happy February!  And, the first of the month always means a new Stampsmith Challenge.  Don't forget to pop over to the Challenge blog and see who won last month's challenge!  This month we are challenging you to create a project that is inspired by this photo.  And, please also use at least one Stampsmith Stamp.

I used the neutral on neutral color scheme of the inspiration photo.  I was thinking that the shoe was fashion related and picked a stamp with fashion theme.  Then I added punched shapes to mimic the shapes in the background of the photo.

This stamp is called Paris Eiffel Dress from The Stampsmith.  I stamped it on glossy CS with black dye ink.

I used a decorative paper that has a lattice type pattern that I felt resembled the pattern of the woven leather shoe.

Pretty cool stamp, don't you think?!  I love this image.  Tres Chic!  Can't wait to see what you come up with!!  Link you project up on the Stampsmith Challenge blog site for a chance to win a gift certificate.

A few Fun challenges for my Fashionable paris lady:
365 Cards: day 30-retro
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes
Creative Moments: neutrals

Hope you are having a great day!!  See you tomorrow with a Perfect Pearls Valentine with Blockhead stamps.  Love ya.
