Wednesday Stamper – Footwear

Wednesday Stamper this week was a piece of work about footwear.

This is my effort, which is a triangular card.
Pattern Paper: Making Memories stripe and Daisy D’s vintage footwear paper.

Stamps are by Art Warehouse and Artistic Stamper and Carved Swirls (Tim Holtz) by Stampers Anonymous and writing is from my large Stampington cube.

I cut a piece of Prism Soot cardstock 6 x 12, then with my easi-score board scored at 2″, 6″ and 10″ intervals from one end, folded and edged with gold pigment ink.

Cut pieces of the MM Stripe paper to fit on the four front panels, edged with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and stamped on the two main panels with the writing from my Stampington large cube in Timber Brown StazOn, and for good measure added a couple of clocks from an Artistic Stamper sheet.
Then took a piece stripe of lined paper from my Heartwarming Expressions pad, and stamped the circles from the Art Warehouse set. Covered the whole thing with Versamark and then Kalidescope EP.

The two smaller front panels I stamped on the MM Striped paper with my carved swirls stamp. Then on a piece of the Heartwarming Expressions lined paper stamped the lace border stamp, covered with Versamark and Kalidescope EP.
I then edged all the pieces with ink and stuck to the panels.
Next stamped out scrabble tiles from my Artistic Stamper scrabble word sheet, and added them to the two larger front panels – “M’Lady has” one one side and “New Shoes” on the other side.
I then stamped a rectangular lace border with the lace stamp big enough to take an image from the vintage shoe paper, masked it off and stamped in hearts from Hero Arts Border Stamp inside, then added a shoe image at an angle, and tied some fibre round it. I added this to one of the larger front panels above the words with silicone glue. I did the same for the other side, but added it below the words.
I took two of the fabulous Sarah Card’s blank chipboard blanks that I picked up from the Bloomin’ Scraps Crop, painted them with Jo Sonja’s Jade acrylic paint, a bit of Jo Sonja’s gold paint. Once dry covered with Versamark and Kalidescope powder again, and heated so that one was purple in colour, and the other slightly greener.
Added bling brads to the centres and ribbon behind, then added on to top on the left panel and one to the bottom on the right panel. Then an eyelet on each side of the two panels so I could tie it shut with string.
For the inside, I covered each panel with a piece of the Daisy D paper, which had been dirtied up with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and Antique Paper Distress ink.
When I was chatting to Linda at the Crop I admitted that I rarely part with my stuff, it only goes to people that will appreciate the work involved – so, I know she would appreciate it, and when it’s done it will go off to her. Although Kelly has aksed me to bring it along when it’s done for her to have a look at it too.
I think I might add a couple of pockets and a bookmark or something to the inside.
The idea is that when it’s tied up it stands in a triangular shape. It was so easy to do with an easi-score board, that I think I will do a lot more of this shape in the future.
