Pretty Little Shoe

I know I'm back already in the same day. That's highly unusual for me. LOL Here I have a project I created for Heartfelt Creations using a wooden horseshoe. Once upon a time I knew this gentlemen that created some really awesome things made from wood. Had asked him if he could make me some horseshoes and wagon wheels so I could decorate them. With in a week or so he had those items all made up for me. Well, never got around to decorating them, we all know how that goes... don't we... 
This project was a lot of fun.
Other Products Used:
Paper: White, Pink and Green
Inks: Versa Mark Watermark Ink, Black acrylic paint, Daffodil Delight - Stampin Up
Accessories: Dried Moss, White and Pink Embossing Powders,
Wooden Horse Shoe, Brads, Pearls - Kaiser scrapbook, Hot glue gun
Project Intructions:
Paint horse shoe black, hot glue moss onto horse shoe. With Striped Sun Kissed Fleur PreCut Set ink up with Versa Mark Watermark ink, stamp twice on pink cardstock and sprinkle with white embossing powder and cut out using Sun Kissed Fleur Die. Crease petals in middle for a more dimensional look and layer flowers and add a brad to centers. Do the very same on white cardstock only this time sprinkle with pink embossing powder. Use the Sun Kissed Fleur PreCut Set and stamp once using Versa Mark ink on green cardstock and sprinkle with white embossing powder. Cut out with Sun Kissed Fleur Die. With scissors cut green flowers (leaves) in half. Glue leaves under flowers. With the Vintage Floret Die, cut out 6 flowers and brush some yellow onto petals. Use Blossom Tools to curve the petals and adhere 2 layers to make flowers and add a pearl in center.  In the Aster stamp set there is a beautiful leaf, stamp it 4 times on green cardstock using Versa Mark ink and sprinkle with white embossing powder and cut with Asters Die. Cut leaves down a bit and place randomly under flowers.
