cricutcardzchallenges

happy wednesday! hope the weeks been good to ya so far. just a quickie post today. 
this week at CCC mary has chosen our theme to be shoes. i also did a little faux embossing.... i used sweethearts ( heart and shoes plus the inside sentiment) and jasmine (corners)  cartridges for this challenge. i also used an ek success punch , kaiser pearls and colorbox fluid chalk. papers are dcwv.be sure to pop on in the blog and see what the rest of the dt has put their heart and soles into..oh yes im quite cheesy ! ;)  we dont get a sneak peak of each others work so i too look forward to the posting every wednesday :) awesome bunch of  creative ladies for sure!
thanks so much for taking the time to visit and comments are greatly appreciated :) have a fun rest of dayXXXshelly
heres where the faux embossing comes in...

what i did was stamp a swirl using staz~on. (black)  . then inked in SU white and see how i slightly went over the first image but not exactly precise over it...this is where you could use your thing a ma jig or other  stamp positioner. this pic is a tad blurry but oh its really pretty in the real ! be sure to try it youll be amazed i swear :)

Hi Shelly--I love the faux-embossing look. It's one I'm going to have to try. Love how you put the shoes inside the heart. Very romantic.
Hugs

the faux-embossing looks great, really professional. i also like the shoes, the kitten heel shoe fits perfectly into that heart, it just works so well!
