In my last post, I shared the Bewitching Bundle and I’ve had a lot of questions about one of the projects.

Secretly, I’m glad cause it’s one of the projects I loved most.  You see, I’m a HUGE Wizard of Oz fan. I’ve lost count of how many times I watched it growing up and as an adult. Watching it reminds me of happy times with my mum and Nana Parker (my grandmother.)

There is something truly magical about Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers. In the movie, they’re bewitching shoes. When I saw the witch’s striped stockings in this set I knew I had to attempt to create a pair of ruby slippers under Dorothy’s house. Here’s what I came up with:

What do you think?

I’ve had heaps of wonderful feedback from my last post about the gallery of Bewitching cards. Apparently, there are three questions that everyone wants to be answered.

Answers to the three most asked questions.

How did you get the bewitching shoes shiny?

In the current mini catalogue, there is a fabulous product called Pearlized Enamel Effects. The three-pack contains red, white and black enamel effects.  You simply just squeeze it on.  This was my first attempt to use it, I squeezed a bit hard and too much came out so it is uneven. In hindsight, less is more use the smallest amount, as you can add more later if you need to.  Included at the bottom of this post is everything I used to create this card.

What did you use to colour the bricks?

Colouring the bricks was a two-part process. First up I applied So Saffron ink to the inside of the Brick & Mortar 3d embossing folder and carefully add my so saffron card stock and ran it through my embossing machine.

Next, I grabbed my So Saffron, Mango Melody, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie ink pads and used a direct-to-paper technique to apply ink to the bricks. (I may have also used Cajun Craze ink too) Basically, what this means is I lightly dragged my ink pad over sections of the raised bricks. I kept adding different inks until I was happy with the depth of colour.

Where did you get that sentiment?

Sadly, the sentiment is from Humour in High Heels, a retired set from Stampin’ Up! that wasn’t released in Australia. Luckily, my friend in the USA got it for me. If I didn’t have the stamp, I would have just printed the quote on So Saffron card stock from my computer because it is awesome!  

So there you have it… answers to the three most asked questions about my Bewitching Shoes! Thanks to everyone who asked questions about this project. It is wonderful when people reach out. If you any questions about this project, please contact me.

Until Next time, happy creating.
