Take a simple shoe

I started off by colouring Stappy Sandal in red with Copics.  (You can get 10% off all my images by quoting code SKIANDREA10 at checkout).  I was getting some awful bleed so I reprinted it off on Make It Crafty card stock instead.  I had another go and this time it was much better.  The straps however were so thin and I was worried I'm make a mess so I got the depth by using a black polychromos pencil.
Once coloured I cut it out with a Spellbinder die and used Tim Holtz vintage photo ink on the edges.

This card is for a commission (so you can see why I didn't want to make a mess).  The over all look was with autumn colours.  Below is a close up of some of the flowers I've used from The Ribbon Girl and Wild Orchid Crafts.  I've also added some twigs from Scrapienic.

Below is a close up of the other flower arrangement.  above this you can see the small wooden heart I used.  these can be found in the wedding section at Hobbycraft.

The design papers are from UHK Gallery and Maja Design (all were distressed).  I've also used some back card for the shaped card base.

To finish off I've added a Scrapienic birthday sentiment and some brass letters to make up MUM.  I found these in Hobbycrafty a while ago.

Hope you love my inspiration for today.
