Although the only way I would ever wear stilettos would be flat on my back, I loved the lacy look of this particular shoe (stamp is from SweetStamps), and thought it would be perfect for a faux parchment technique on vellum.
The paper underneath the vellum is that homemade paper I made a couple of months ago by smashing azaleas into white cardstock. It had a very muted purple color, so I tried to match it with purple cardstock, which just made the color look gray. I figured the only thing to do is to match it with gray cardstock, so you can really see the purple. I had to punch and doodle a couple of butterflies to match the one on the shoe. Three brads hold the vellum to the paper - I hate trying to glue vellum!
I love to make little things like cards and jewelry, because I love to share them. I love blogging about them because I can share them with even more people. If you see something you really like, send me an
- if it isn't already promised to someone else, I will probably mail it to you.
