CASology Week 12 & Technique Tuesday

The cue word at CASology this week is - SHOE.
I received some goodies that I had purchased off ebay a couple of weeks ago and the lovely lady had popped in some freebies for me. One of them was a die cut of a shoe so I knew I should use it in this challenge lol. The next thing I thought of was that it HAD to be used with the Faux Leather technique as taught by Mynnette. I've done a few cards using this technique and I personally think it rocks!
Here is my card -

I have used Very Vanilla cardstock which I have scored using the diagonal plate on my Simply Scored. The sentiment is from my Petite Pairs set. The flower at the toe of the shoe is from IBS. The pearls are from Stampin' Up.

I actually took photos as I was going this time! Fancy that!
This is the cut out of the shoe which I have covered with little pieces of masking tape.


I have then used my brayer and inked it up with Concord Crush.



Then I covered the whole shoe with clear embossing powder and used my heat gun to set. This gives the finished product a real cool glossy finish (which may not show too well in the pics).




I hope you pop over to these challenges to join in the fun!

Thanks for looking xx

  1. Well this is just gorgeous! Did you really cover the whole shoe with clear ep? Did you use versamark first? I've not used this technique before.

    Anyway totally love it.
