Meljen's Designs Challenge #52

This challenge this week at Meljen's Designs is a sketch for us to follow that was created by design team member, Dianna.

Dianna allowed for flipping the sketch as desired.  This is my take on the sketch:

This image is from the new realease this week and is called, Victorian Shoe Daisies.  All of the images this week had a vintage feel to them.  They were so wonderful!  You can buy this image at the Whimsy Stamp store.

I colored the image using copics for the boot and prismacolor pencils for the heel and toe.  This is my first time using the pencils, and I have a lot to learn!  I added pearls to the buttons on the boot using a Viva Decor Pearl Pen in cream.  I used the Tea Stain ink pad from the Stampin' Up distressing kit to age the paper.  I crocheted the flower using the pattern I found here.
