A Fairy Shoe....

Golly me after a VERY busy morning doing chores and outdoor jobs before the rain came back on Ive eventually got on the computer to play!!1
Well its between Midsummer and Fairy Day so Here is a wee Fairy Shoe to celebrate Summer (Well If you can call it Summer with the terrible weather we have been getting the last wee while)
 I thought I would have a wee go at making a shoe fit for a Fairy. 
(it was meant to be for Frosted Petunias Altered Shoe Challenge but didnt realise my shoe had to be a real one. Will be taking part in the Autumn Challenge over there though with a Halloween Shoe!)
I used a 12 x 12 piece of card. I next scribbled lots of different colours of metallic promarker pens and aquamarkers (Both Letraset) on a sheet of plastic. Then I spritzed it and popped the cardstock down onto it. The colours mixed a bit but I really liked the finished result. There is some shine from the metallic pens so its really a very pretty shiney shoe. Especially with the Glitter on the toe too!
If you are going to Fairy Land you better remember the Fairy Dust and Your Ticket, I think they may be quite strict with the Big Human People.

I would like to enter my Fairy Shoe into the following
Sarah Hurley Challenge - Dimension and Texture.
Delightful Challenge - Anything Goes.
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes.
Simon Says Challenge - Anything But a Card.
Passion For Promarkers - Glitter and Pastels
(not sure if it counts on this one as no image but papers made with my pens. Sorry to the Girls if not xxx)

Hazel your fairy shoe is too lovely to miss. It's just sweet and dainty and I love the soft colors you used. Any fairy would be tickled to wear it. Don't worry that you crafted it from paper, even the fairies get a little mixed up sometimes :) I'd love to have you link up to the party if you don't mind. I'm glad you made something magical to share. Thank you!
