Be Brave...

Hello and happy wednesday!!
You do not know how long I've struggled with this card, for several days, and still I am not happy with it.

First I stamped and painted the shoe with distress markers, and made ​​a card.
But I did not think it was good, so I cut out the shoe and started again from scratch.

This time I covered the shoe with Glossy Accents for a coated look, and the wings got a lot of glitter, too.
I wanted the card would have a combined feeling of punk and 1920's. A little tough and cheeky, yet have a simple elegance.

I used stamps from Creative Expressions Steampunk Shoes.
The background paper I made by using Distress Inks, masks and some stamps.
Accessories: wrinkled ribbon, lace, brad, pearl swirl, flowers, metal buckle, tulle.
That´s all from me today.
Thank you so much for stopping by, have a great day!
Hugs, Birgit
