Jeepers Creepers


     Today I have a card made using a Woodware stamp called Sneakers. This stamp lends itself perfectly to the technique of paper piecing. I've chosen to make a masculine card but it could just as easily be made for a girl, just use feminine patterned paper instead.
     The sneakers are stamped on white thin card and on patterned paper and embossed in black. I have cut the patterned paper image to become the canvas upper, leaving the white for the sole. I have coloured with a grey alcohol marker inside the shoe and the toes, just to darken them a little. The laces are coloured with a white gel pen and the lace holes with a silver gel pen.
     The sneakers are cut out and mounted on a patterned paper, the gaps between the lace bow are tiny so I have coloured them to match the backing paper rather than cut it all out. The word 'style' is another Woodware stamp from a set called Graffiti, stamped and embossed in black and then coloured in with an alcohol marker. The little star on the heel is also in the Sneakers set, this is stamped on white and coloured, then cut and stuck on the shoe.
     The mat layer is a white card piece coloured on the edge with the same marker as the word so that it matches, it is then mounted using Stix2 double sided tape on a white card blank.
     Both Woodware and Stix2 products are available from your local craft shop, please support your independent retailer, they need you!
