Another pair of shoes !

Well that's Monday over with, it's been a beautiful day and I am loving the light nights ! The card I'm sharing with you today is an order for an A5 Good Luck card.

The brief was to include shoes and handbags and can you believe it I don't own a a handbag stamp ! So, I've had to improvise and use a topper from the bottom of a drawer ! I made the background using a selection of Tim Holtz, Katzelkraft and Tanda stamps. The text panel is made using the Stampin' Up En Francais stamp. The shoes are made using my Clarity shoe stamp, masking off the first one and stamping a second. They've been coloured with a Prisma Pencil and then I've added some Glossy Accents. The frame is made from thin chipboard, painted with acrylic paint then with Paper Artsy Crackle Glaze and then another coar of acrylic paint. The flower is made from grunge paper that I've stuck pieces from an old book to and then die cut using the Tattered Flowers die.

The little tag is a Quickutz die and the swirl is from the Elegant Flourishes die. The panel that the handbag is sitting on has also been cut from thin chipboard and given the Crackle Glaze treatment. I've done some faux stitching around the edge to bring it all together and the little charm is a TH Type Charm and I've punched a small circle of paper to fit it.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
