Winged Shoe

Hi Bloggers.

We're back to shoes today and another card made using the Creative Expressions Steampunk Shoes Stamp Set designed by Sam Poole.

I stamped the image on to white card using Plum Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out with scissors and a craft knife, removing the 'wings' from the back of the shoe. I made some new wings from some Cosmic Shimmer Heat Bondable Film in Aurora Sparkle and some Cosmic Shimmer Heat Bondable Fibres in Summer Blush which I bonded together using my encaustic iron and then I cut out a butterfly from the Spellbinders Wonderful Wings die set.

For the background, I inked up the Woodgrain Mask with Perfect Medium. I popped a piece of white card on top of the mask and ran it through the Grand Calibur. The ink transferred to the debossed areas on the card. I then added some some Dark Cherry Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Dark Dusks Mica Spray Set.

I stamped 8 small tickets (2 of each design) from the Creative Expressions Tickets Stamp Set using Plum Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut them out and added a Creative Expressions Faux Screw Brad in Antique Copper through all the tickets. I splayed the tickets out so that they looked like a flower and popped some 3D foam on the back to keep them in place.

I cut a Spellbinders Lattice Motif and some leaves from the Spellbinders Foliage Die Set out of burgundy card.

I assembled the card as shown and added a bit of faux stitching around the edges.

Let me now what you think as I'm not entirely happy with this card. I may add a few more leaves to it and/or pop some screw brads in the corners. There's such a fine line between finishing a card and over-doing it, don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by.
