The Crafty Pad Challenge #86 - Simply Pearls

Hi there, this is my second post of this morning and it's to bring you a new challenge and theme over at The Crafty Pad. This week we would like to see some Pearls on your creations.

You don't have to use a Crafty Pad Image, but if you do then you will get a second entry into the prize draw. I've used the lovely Elegant Shoe from Debbie's wonderful selection of shoes, boots and slippers. You can find them all Here

I've coloured it with Lime green Pro Markers and then added black gems and black glitter to all the little dots. Whew!! it took ages and I was covered in glitter for days,
lol. The rest of my recipe is at the bottom of this post.

Our Sponsor this week is Crafty Sentiments who are giving a wonderful polymer stamp to one lucky winner.

Thank you for dropping in for a visit, do leave me a few words to let me know you were here.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday and for those in the UK I hope you are having a great Bank Holiday Weekend.
