Creepy Shoes

While looking through my stash of stamps, I thought it would be fun to dress one of Karen Lockhart's shoes up for Halloween. Well, as you can see below, my thought process got a little out of control to say the least! I had first thought about making a shoe look like a witch's shoe but then I saw the Pasta and Meatballs stamp. Anyone would immediately see blood and goo and eyeballs right? Okay, maybe not!! My mind definitely thinks out of the box sometimes.

Then I thought about a sentiment. What could you pair with shoes that have eyeballs? JustRite Stampers to the rescue again! Did you ever watch that scary movie where the babysitter keeps getting phone calls asking, *Do you know where the children are?* That movie really creeped me out when I was young!! That's what made me think of my sentiment.
I was able to spell out the words with the JustRite Small Alphabet Stamp Set and a circles border stamp, using the smallest round wood block stamper. I cut the circle out with a Spellbinder's circle template. Again, the JustRite stamps were designed to fit perfectly with Spellbinder's Nestabilities dies. I mounted the circle onto another scallop cut die from Spellbinder's.

For the shoe image, I used Copic Sketch markers and then added some shine to the eyeballs using a black glossy gel pen. I cut the image layers with rectangle Nestabilities from Spellbinders. My final finishing touches were some green and black harlequin patterned paper, black and white gingham ribbon and some bright green craft paint seeping down the card.
Hmmmm, now who do I know that would appreciate this somewhat twisted card???


By the way, Marianne from Copic has some great posts on her blog about airbrushing. Check out her great tips HERE.

Mish,
I have a question for you...

I have jars of buttons-some old, some new-and they are arranged in canning jars by color. I just rcvd some foofala (sp) buttons in the mail and was wondering if I should take them out of their cute packaging and put them in the jars with the rest or leave them as is?

What would you do? How do you store your stash of buttons?

I thought I would ask you because you have such neat organizing ideas. Thanks ahead of time.

Love your blog!!!!!
