I was talking with my friend and fellow demonstrator Brian about the catalog not too long ago.
We sort of did a stroll through the catalog and pointed out things we'd like and would use.
During the stroll, we came to the Talented Trio set, which we both loved.
But I just casually said "I love this set - but I'm not sure why that one girl has weird peg feet - anyhoo - I love it anyway."
I live in a VERY hot climate.
I'm practically on the equator.
I'm infinitely more likely to encounter a pirate than an ice skate.
Which is what the girl ACTUALLY has on her feet. Her real feet, which are not pegs.
To Brian's credit, he did not laugh until he had to be hospitalized when I said this. He just said (perhaps with a "your hair is so pretty" tone in his voice, for which he can be excused) "Um, those are ice skates." And we moved on.
It's good to surround yourself with people of different backgrounds so that if you think someone has peg feet, a friend can tell you about ice skates. With very little judgement and an appropriate amount of amusement. It's also good if they don't live in the same state, so they can make fun of you later after you get off the phone. Come on - I know you did.
Well now that I KNOW they are ice skates, composition with her is SOOO much easier.
I shot an awesome video of the card I made with her and it vanished into the thin air of the Iphone, so you'll have to settle for a picture of pegfoot-turned-ice-skater.
I made her for today's Color Challenge on Splitcoast. I am honored to be a guest designer for this challenge for July. And today's color challenge is stunning: Melon Mambo, Sahara Sand and Island Indigo. For some reason when I saw it, my mind went to winter, and to pegfoot.
With the exception of Blushing Bride on her face, the ONLY colors I watercolored with were these three. And I think they look great together.
I did it with an Aquapainter on a watercolor card base after stamping her in Sahara Sand - I have a bunch of these card bases left over from the retreat that I like to experiment on - this one was a keeper! Stars and skate blades, a.k.a. pegs, are silver glimmer paper.

You have to admit - pegfoot is looking pretty sassy here. This card took maybe 15 minutes to make. I did restamp her face with the MISTI and Sahara sand when I was done coloring just to put her features back.
I hope you enjoyed laughing at my ignorance of all things icy. I live to serve.
