Firstly, I'd like to say a huge thank you to Chrissie and Jen at Less is More for choosing my card as one to ShowCASe for the Week 29 Challenge, Handmade Flowers. I was so excited to get recognised amongst some fabulous entries so THANK YOU :)
I've left it very late to enter this week's Less is More challenge but I've made it with a few hours to spare. This week we are to use a Pinterest Picture as our inspiration. Chrissie and Jen chose a piccie of some fabulous killer heels and here is my card, followed by the inspiration photo...
I started with a cream card base. I don't have any shoe stamps so I decided to pick up a few details from the photograph. I stamped a black strip of card with some vertical stripes using VersaMark ink and then embossed with black embossing powder, I wanted to capture the shiny patent of the shoes, hopefully you can just about see this in the photo. I then looped some stitched ribbon, similar to that detailed on the shoes, and secured this under a shiny black button, also tied with some ribbon. As the shoes are 'fabulous' I chose a sentiment to reflect this, also inked up with VersaMark and again embossed with black embossing powder. A few black gemstones were added to finish.
- Cardstock: From stash
- Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Basic Stripes and A Little Sentimental
- Ink: VersaMark
- Embossing Powder: Stampin' Up - Black
- Ribbon, button and gemstones from stash
Right, I need to go and start getting glammed up for the engagement party I mentioned in my post yesterday.
Take care and see you soon :)
