Crocodile Shoes

I was a little unsure where to start when I received the Texture Fragments stamps but  once you start playing with these stamps you just can't stop. They are really versatile stamps and lend themselves to so many different techniques.


 I thought that one of the stamps looked a little bit like a crocodile print and set to with alcohol inks on glossy card and them over stamped with the texture stamp using Rich Cocoa memento dye ink.  The gorgeous swirly corners are from Christmas Angel of Light stamp sheet, stamped in versamark and embossed with brown EP.

To create the shoe I used the free Paper Shoe Template and more of the glossy card coloured with alcohol inks. This time I stamped the texture in versamark and  again embossed with brown EP. I trimmed the shoe with ribbon and lace and added a Vintage Trinkets metal flower.

To finish off I've added some paper flowers and die cut leaves (Crealies shapes 11) and a die cut happy birthday sentiment.

Thanks for popping by

  2. This is an outstanding example of thinking outside the box & where imagination can take you. Love the little green leaves against the browns. The ruffle on the shoe front with the metal flower is a lovely touch.
