Freebie Footwear: Shoes/Boots

Here are a couple of free images to get you started in the SHOES challenge.

The first one is a Victorian-era die cut. These little scraps were made just for scrapbooks, which became popular with Victorian ladies and girls. Victorian scrapbooks are filled with pictures clipped from magazines and advertisements, and companies soon began to give away collectible trade cards with pretty or funny pictures on them. Eventually little die-cut scraps came along. I don't know what the deal is with boots or shoes with flowers in them, but our collection includes several so they must have been a popular theme!

The second image (below) is clipped from an antique trade card. I tend to think of it as a gentlemen's style, but with the heel I think it may be a lady's shoe as well ~ an everyday little boot, rather than a high boot or fancy slipper!

Right-click to enlarge and save and get busy creating, then link up your creation in our challenge! :-)
