The Diedrich Dare: Walk Humbly in the Lord

This is my 2nd post today -- please scroll down for my Flutter By Wednesday post.

This week we had a terrific sketch by sweet Ava; it's a great basic sketch that can be interpreted in so many ways!

My card uses another image from Sugar Creek Hollow. I love the look of vintage boots. I'm pretty sure that no Victorian lady wore a size 11 so I'll never be able to experience what they are like to wear. But aren't they gorgeous!?! I love this pair with it's elegant and whimsical details. This could absolutely be used in a vintage way or in a more modern way. My card today is a mix of the two!

I watercolored the boots and then cut them out using a Quickutz tag die. Faux stiching, a polka dot flower paired with the organza flower and the bits of lace are a mix of different eras.

Take a spin over to the Diedrich Dare blog to see the featured team member this week. And check out the rest of the team members too!

This is so soft & pretty! The DP you used is gorgeous w/ the perfect addition of the flower & lace. And, those boots are pretty fun - I'd love to try them out too. ;)

So sweet and soft looking! I'm sure there were Victorian ladies with larger feet but why would you want antique opts instead of repros with padding! :) love the lace too.
