Best foot forward!

Good evening. Hope you've had a lovely day- I have! Been out shopping and for lunch with OH. Actually bought some shoes... not boots- shoes! I do have a bit of an addiction to boots which is probably why I couldn't resist this fabulous Stampendous stamp! Sadly, I can no longer wear heels like these...but I can dream!!!!
To make my card I inked a piece of white cardstock with blue and brown distress inks, then randomly stamped the cogs around the edges. The boot was stamped with clear versamark ink and embossed with a copper coloured embossing powder. I coloured the image with a blue distress marker and bronze and copper coloured Twinkling H2o's, quick and easy because of the embossed lines. Clock face is glossy accented. Cogs are diecuts attached with brads. A few gems added to finish! I like the result and I'll definitely be using this stamp again!!!
Thanks for looking!
