I have some inspiration for all of you! I have been willing summer on (if you are an overseas visitor, we are just starting spring in Australia) and have created this thong/flip flop/sandal to help you get in the mood for Sarah's challenge. You have until the end of September to enter, and she has great prizes, including a category just for overseas entries! What's stopping you? Strut your shoe style!
I have used craft foam and this template for my shoe, which measures just short of 4 1/2 inches in length. The stamps are from Heidi Grace 'Reagan's Closet' set, stamped in stazon black (it fades a little on the craft foam as it dries). It was coloured using plain old metallic gel pens.
Gently slice the openings for the ribbon, taking care not to tear the foam. I cut a shoe template from white cardstock which I adhered to the bottom of the craft foam just to hold it solid, and keep the ribbons in place. I topped it off with a handmade beaded flower on the front. I'm thinking this would make a great embellishment for a summer LO.
I'd really love to see you have a go at this challenge - it is so easy, and there are heaps of different ways you can interpret it :)
