Stampin Sisterhood Challenge #11

Welcome to Sisterhood Sundays!

 This is challenge SS11.

This week's challenge is an is an inspiration photo:

My Take:
 Clean and Simple this week!

First I punched three squares out of scrap cardstock, placed them on a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of scrap cardstock and cut around the squares with my craft knife.  This is the easiest way for me to make a template!
Then I used my ink blending tool and Tim Holtz Shabby Shutters ink and my ink blending tool to shade in the three squares.

The shoe stamp was inked with Versamark first and then Peeled Paint ink then stamped onto the square.  The shoe was heat embossed with clear/glitter embossing powder.

Add jewels and sentiment and Voila!

  •  Stamps: Fashion Icons Set 455 SKU:455 and Set 456 SKU:456 both from Rubbernecker Stamp Company;
  • Ink: StazOn Jet Black, Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint; VersaMark;
  • Paper: white cardstock--and scrap cardstock; 
  • Accessories: Clear/Glitter embossing powder; ink blending tool; square punch; jewels;

    As always there are more details on the Stampin Sisterhood Blog, such as challenge details, prize details, and links to other BEAUTIFUL creations!

 I needed a card this week for my daughter's accompanist.  She is my daughter's piano teacher and for Solo and Ensemble Contest, she accompanied my daughter on piano for her flute solo.

 Details: the label and the tag are from the Dollar "Fun Finds" at Michaels.  The dove and edge punch on the tag are from Martha Stewart.  All of the other items are from my stash. ;)

 Thanks for taking a peek!
