MC Apr/13 - Fairy Dust Digi - A Journey Shoes

click on image to enlarge
I was asked to be a guest designer on Lexi's Creations with a theme of lace/ribbon. I was also given a choice of a digi image and I thought the Vintage boots (Fairy Dust Crafts) would be just right for lace and ribbons. BIG GRIN.

I printed it out on 110# white cardstock and cut out the upper section so it stood above the card fold. The card is 8.5"w x 4"h.

Colored the shoes with Prisma colored pencils and a Lyra Splendor Blender. Printed the shoe image again from regular cardstock and cut out the brown area to use as a stencil to stamp a background stamp (Impression Obsession "Flourishes") decoration on the shoes using Versafine Vintage Sepia and embossing with a rusty brown embossing powder.

Taped the cut out back onto the shoes and then cut out around the whole shoe design to use as a mask for stamping my background using the same stamp as above with Perfect Medium and clear embossing. Sponging with Distress Antique Linen & Spun Sugar.

Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design) with the Vintage Sepia and clear embossed.

Stamped the lace edging (Kaiser Craft) with Perfect Medium and clear embossed.

Punched out holes around the background and threaded a burgundy narrow ribbon. As a final touch, added Liquid Pearls "White Opal" for the faux buttons.

It fits for these challenges:
