Pretty Blue Shoe!
Sorry a little bit late but the schedule time was incorrect! I hope you all still get to see it x
I have had this Anna Marie Designs Shoe Stamp for some time, I decided today is the day I will use it, so here goes.....
I took a piece of Coconut white card and stamped the shoe in the bottom corner and coloured the image with Promarkers Denim Blue and Pear Green. I trimmed the card to approximately 7 x 6 in.
I drew a faint line around the card with a fine liner pen and mounted onto a piece of Ballet Blue spotty card from Anna Marie Designs, I then roughed the edges with the blade of my scissors, and put mounting foam on the back and added it to the base card which has a piece of Ballet Blue dotty card and a tiny border of white card.
I chose to embellish the shoe with flowers made from using Creative Expressions Camelia Die, which I cut 2-3 times for each flower, I stuck them down with Cosmic Shimmer Glue, and added
pearls to the centres. I added a Diamond Laser cut sheet from Anna Marie Designs and trimmed it around the shoe, I have been wanting to get my hands on these for months, I love the effect they give and they break up the background, I will stamp the relationship of the recipient in the lattice background (my Mum. My Daughter, Niece etc). I cut a couple of swirly dies out and added them to the background and tied a ribbon into a bow and put it in the top left hand corner, with the swirly bits underneath and added some flowers made using Creative Expressions Camelia Die and made the bed etc. I topped it with a couple of leaves and the flower made from the dotty background card, a few flowers (roses) added some length the border and some little beaded stamens also from AMD , I will add the sentiment to the card when I know who it is for.
Well what do you think?
My biggest fan/critic says I make too many blue cards (blue colour not blue humour)! lol
so I will make an effort to use more colours in future!
I hope you all have a fun weekend, we are off to vets for Bella's first check up this morning.
I hope you are all safe from this terrible wind, its howling out there tonight!
Crafty hugs to all of you,
