Less is More Week 130 - A Pinterest Picture Inspiration

Hi guys

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...

Aren't these shoes fabulous!  Unfortunately, I've never been able to wear such high heels but they are still lovely to look at! :D

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.

Materials used:
  • 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 :)
