Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge #6 - Photo Inspiration

It's Thursday and that means time for the Lil Lolita Boutique weekly challenge! I have been having a blast stamping this week and I hope you have too. My craft desk looks like a tornado hit it but really it's just my mojo! :) This week, Kellie, our beloved Boss Lady gave us this fabulous photo of some shoes that I just GOTTA have or should I say would've had already pre-kids. Honestly, I can't remember the last time I stuck my feet in heels. But these are gorgeous and just sooooo funky:
Gorgeous, right?! Well, here is my card - I drew my inspiration from the gorgeous color combo of that hot pink with black & white and the little skulls you see there on the heel. Of course, for me none other but Lilith would do for these shoes!

I colored her with Copics & added this fabulous border I've had for ages. I also used the monthly sketch from Tickled Pink Stamps Monthly Challenges for my card today. I love when two things come together so perfectly. And do you see my NEW watermark? I decided that I needed a watermark. Why? I don't know - basically b/c everyone else has one. LOL And I figure with this DT and possibly some more in the works....*giggle* I have a secret & you'll just have to stay tuned to find out more! Maybe it's time I bump up my photos with a watermark. I'm not entirely thrilled with it yet - tho I DO LOVE the faery - found a GREAT pixie brush for PSE from Obsidian Dawn. Wow, talk about an inspiring website! I know I need a better, clearer font but really did not have time to go looking for that today. I will be refining it as I go along.
Thanks for stopping by & please check out what the rest of the Lil Lolita Ladies have come up with!!! So much prettiness in one place - don't miss it!
