Ruby Slippers

I can't remember the last time I made a card for the Less is More challenge! The theme this week is to make a one layer card featuring two of something. Today I had a little time to play and dug out these stamps... I've had them for months but just haven't got around to showing them an ink pad until now!
I inked up the stamps with versamark and heat embossed them in black. I then masked off the shoes and used red distress ink through a MB designer stencil. The shoes are coloured with copics,  copiously glittered and glossy accented, the cogs are coloured with a gold gel pen! I love these shoes!
Sooo tempting to add more 'stuff' to this card...I'm out of the habit of CAS!
Thanks for visiting!
