If the Shoe Fits

Hi Bloggers.

This is probably going to be my first demo today.

For the background, I spritzed a piece of Milk Card with Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mister in Marigold. I dried it with my heat tool and then popped the Floral Vines Mask on top. I inked through the mask using the Paris Trunk Dye Ink Pad in Sepia using Cut n Dry Foam. I then randomly stamped over the top with the circular shoes stamp from the Creative Expressions If the Shoe Fits.... Stamp Set (another one of Sam Poole's designs).

I stamped the shoe from the same stamp set using jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the inside of the shoe and the heel using the Sepia ink and a paint brush (I swiped some ink onto a tile and added a little water to it from a paint brush). For the main design on the shoe, I dipped a damp paint brush into the Dark Bronze Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Mica Spray Set 1 - Metallics. I put the Mica Powder on to a tile and a little water until the desired consistency was reached. I cut the shoe out with scissors and then went around the edges with a marker pen to hide any white bits. I cut the largest of the Spellbinders Splendid Circles out of Milk Card and inked through the die with Sepia.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 25 and inked through the die with Sepia.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Black Swirls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Dark Bronze around the edges.

Hope you can join me on Create & Craft today at 1pm and 7pm.

Thanks for stopping by.
