Little dancer

Today my friend Pam and I decided to use the Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge  CC504  and this week's Mojo Monday sketch MOJO 371 We also added our own special twist. She choose pearls and lace and I chose non sentiment text and glitter. 

 I used the little dancer from Diane Daydream Designs set called MY HEART STILL DANCES

Yesterday I watched a video on youtube. It was about making ballet slippers out of toilet paper tubes. I took the concept and made a little pair for this card. Here is the VIDEO  I tried to make the slippers a coral color by mixing hot pink and orange and then I covered the slippers with white tissue paper. It looked pretty but it didn't quite match what I wanted. So I ended up painting them. I had orange ribbon that was the right width, but wrong color. So I painted the ribbon too.

 I finished off my slippers with pearls and itty bitty quilled roses.


  1. Oh how sweet your little slippers turned out, what a lovely embellishment for your card :)

  2. This is so pretty MariLynn - you have really enhanced the beautiful image with the way you have coloured her, and those wee ballet shoes are stunning.

  3. I just think this is all perfectly precious, MariLynn. Those little shoes...oh, my goodness. You are good, dear friend!
