I may have gone a little overboard with the textures here… Pen drawing with colour and texture added in Photoshop. I was drinking tea (pretty much my base state) at the computer and using an old pressed-metal coaster, so I scanned that in as well and used it for the textures.
The real boots are plain black, and I love them – they are the most comfortable shoes I have owned and I have spent a whole evening dancing in them (in these socks and a black brocade regency dress with a train) without a twinge.
And as a Christmas present, I have put up some gift tags which you are welcome to print and use.
I love it, how fantastic! That texture all over adds a lot of zing! Wish I had the shoes.
Its wonderful, I like the texture.
I like it, the texture adds interest to it
great use of the pattern. I agree with the other, it really makes the figure stand out.
I covet the shoes. I think the all-over pattern actually isn’t overboard, it adds something different to the picture.
Oh Katie, it’s beaudiful!
And I also want your shoes. Think they’ll have ’em next winter?
I also love the skirt, by the way. And the colours. And *especially* the texture.
Thank you all, very much!
Aimee – I think you’ve borrowed this skirt – it’s the magenta, black and white Indian print with the safety pin at the side :)
