Postmarked cyberstamp

The monthly INKlings Cyberstamp came around again and this time I got to set the challenges. Needless to say, it was just another excuse for me to do something silly in the name of trying to be funny *grin*

For the first challenge, I chose a colour scheme. I really hope that Kristina Werner does not mind but I CASEd her color inspiration - for this one Cyberstamp only. Please don't sue me, Kristina!

Practically Purple Pumps Colour ChallengeAs some of you may already have read, I love shoes! I use to collect them but, now, most of them sit in storage, waiting for their moment in the sun when they go for a jaunt down the red carpet. (What can I say? I'm a big disappointment to these shoes!) Anyway, after rummaging through the shoe stash that stays with me, I found this pair that screamed out "Wear me to somewhere grand!" - instead, I featured them as inspiration for a colour challenge...

I hope to feature a round-up of the INKlings wonderful creations using this colour scheme if they post them on their respective blogs. In the meanwhile, here is my attempt:

Unfortunately, this card does not exist in this form any longer. After I snapped the first photo of it, the wind swept it up and dumped it on the grass that was left wet by the rain. So, it is a smudged remnant of its former self. Oh well! At least I have one photo - maybe I should scrap it up?

Oh Lin Mei, I don't know which I like better - the shoes or the card. Both are awesome (well, the card 'was'!).

Hey Marcia! Shoes win hands down (or should that be feet down)...

Glad to know that you have a chance to recuperate from the crazy busy week you have had.

Love the card Lin Mei - very elegant. And what gorgeous shoes! How long have you been collecting??

Lin Mei said...

Thanks Sue! I started collecting about the time I started working but the addiction really kicked in about 10 years ago when I discovered my first Giuseppe Zanottis at half price at Gary Castles. I then had to look on ebay because there are only so many shoes one can afford at the list price of $995!
