Parchment Stiletto

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 like what you did with the stiletto and butterflies. Once upon a time I would have worn them (maybe).
