More stuff from a while back

Recently I came across this paper shoe photo, sadly as my old computer died some time back, I have lost the book mark that took me to site the template I used came from.  However if you want to have a go this free template from Chocolate Baroque is very similar.

Once I had cut out all the parts needed for the shoe from plain white card I coloured them by blending Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink onto each piece, then stamped over using a script stamp from the Eccentric Edwardian theme-plate currently available from Chocolate Baroque.  On the outside upper and heel pieces I over-stamped and heat embossed with a gold sparkle embossing powder (my photo only shows the gold embossing on the upper, sorry).  The stamp I used was from an Elusive Images set which I seem to recall was called Damask Delights, but does not seem to be one of the designs saved by Chocolate Baroque, however they do have this very similar stamp available.  Some narrow ribbon, gems and a paper rose spritzed with Glimmer Mists provided the finishing touches.

Here's One I Made Earlier...

Another week has gone by and the hand is slowly improving.  Still can't stamp, but I can click a mouse and scroll through some of my old photographs of stuff I made.  Found this one, made more than a year ago using stamps from Clarity Stamp, Adirondack dye ink pads and Nestabilities Labels 2.

Bones Update and a Wedding Card

The hand is healing slowly, the swelling is pretty much gone and the bruising has changed from shades of Black Soot, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves to lightly blended tones of Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint and Mustard Seed.  Still don't have much grip so it will be a while longer before I can do much in the way of stamping.  Meantime however I have found some old pictures of a Wedding Card I made using one of my favorite stamps.  The beautiful Rose Script stamp is available from Chocolate Baroque.

The image was stamped and heat embossed in gold onto pearlescent card then painted with Twinkling H2Os.  I used peel-offs for the gold borders and the greeting and made a box for the card to be delivered in.
