Converse Revisited

Those of you who have followed my blog for a while might feel that you've seen this card before. Well, you have....kinda. I made this card almost exactly a year ago, and a friend just asked me if I'd make one for her, but in green and blue. Always an obliging chap, here's the result! :)

I had made the background paper myself in Inkscape, so it was easy to change the colour from red to green and reprint it. It's matted on black American Crafts linen textured cardstock (basically their version of Bazill) and the shoes are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink then coloured with promarkers.

As ever, click the image for a larger view. See you tomorrow! :)
