Stamped Wedges

Let’s talk about palm trees.

Actually let’s talk about the fact that it’s nearly the third week of August and I’ve just now decided to add palm trees to my wardrobe. It’s not that I haven’t thought about it. I’ve been eying these wedges on F21 for awhile but was a little too weary of the ankle strap to make the commitment. It wasn’t until earlier this week that I realized I had all the supplies to make my palm tree printed shoe dreams come true.

I started with an eraser and a simple palm tree illustration…

…that I carved out with an x-acto knife.

Then I tested it. At this point, I didn’t care how the rest of the project went. I had a palm tree stamp. And that was awesome enough.

But I did eventually dig an old pair of wedges out of my closet. They were begging for a makeover. I used black craft paint on the stamp and touched up the really sloppy trees with a Sharpie, then sealed it all with Mod Podge.

I’m more pleased with the results than I thought I would be… even if I do only get to wear them for a few more weeks.
