Teapot Tuesday 85

This week's teapot is a hoot!  This is Flat Footed Booby Ruby and to get the whole story you must check out Cindy's glob and see her museum quality work. 

This may seem a little bizarre but it goes with the story, sort of.  Ruby the Flat Footed Booby is looking for some shoes. Some stylin' shoes.  She'd prefer if they weren't green.  So she'll be steppin' out and doing some major shoe shopping and the teapot partyers are going to bring her more shoes to choose. 

Well, while she was out her booby baby Bobbi was being booby babysat by her baba and was very good.  Ruby had found these booby baby slippers that looked liked baby booties which reminded her of her booby baby Bobbi and they were so comfortable she knew they would be perfect to relax in after all that shoe shopping so she bought them. 

Bobbi on the other hand (or should I say foot) hopped into the slipper and refused to get out.  So Ruby, being the good booby mother that she is, made a little nest inside the booty for Bobbi to sleep in. 

You see the shoes that Bobbi is holding in her mouth, well they're part of a memory game that one of the tea partyers made for her. 

So, you're probably wondering how I came up with this story.  I have no idea.  I think the time change had gotten to me!  But I can tell you how I put it together.

I found the shoe pattern on the internet. You can find lot's of shoe patterns if you google "paper shoe pattern".  I chose a baby girl shoe.  I thought the birds on this dsp would be perfect to go along with the stamped bird from the SU set Good Friend.  The shoes are from Year Round Fun II. 

The bird is stamped in Pacific Point on Whisper White cs.  The wings are punched from the 2-step bird punch, outlined with a white prismacolor pencil and layered.  The dots on the tail feathers are hand done with a black marker.  I punched a 1/4" circle in white and added a black brad for the eye.  The beak is stamped in Glorious Green and the shoes are all colored with markers and blender pen.  I added two toothpicks to the back of the bird to get her to stand in the nest material which is just crimped packing material. 

This little shoe, sans bird, would make a cute little baby shower favor filled with some candy don't you think?

Okay, I'm heading over to the teapot gallery to take a look and make some comments - care to join me?

  2. I've been meaning and meaning to come and check out Ruby's story - so glad I remembered. Booby Baby Bobbi is going to know her shoes with that little memory game someone was kind enough to give her. Isn't it so frustrating the way colours look different on different PCs. DH very sensibly said we should bring the laptop on holidays to be able to look at photos, but I never trust the colours on it. I don't mind uploading, but I like to do my editing on mine. And then, I have no idea what it looks like on someone else's. Not really being into purple, I way prefer your little blue bird.

  3. This is so sweet. I love the way you used this paper. It is perfect for this sweet little bootie.. I have been looking at that pattern.. What a great piece for the teapot challenge..


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
