Late DT card for 613 Avenue..Floral Shoe

Hiya..I checked what was our project earlier and it seemed a creative piece,so I have not coloured ,but have made a floral 3D shoe for the new challenge that begins today.. For the body I cut out using a Tattered Lace 3D shoe die ..However there are a lot of shoe templates available for free on the internet ,so look around and you will find some really nice ones..I used Santorio Mirabelle paper pad with gloss roses on to construct the shoe with as it is thick and stiff and holds well in 3D work..Once I cut the shoe I folded all the little tabs down ready to stick down..I started with glue but found it not working for me in this case,but the tabs are very small on this die..So instead I used the red high tack red glue ,attached to the base of the shoe then gradually went around sticking the upper part of the shoe to the sole..Then I covered the tags with a bit of pink Centura Pearl so it looks neat underneath as well as giving it extra support..You will probably not have the same problem with the glue it was too fiddly for me to use,as my fingers are stiff and sore from arthritis and for me this is a very rare project ..but I do love creating different things as a change from cards.The flowers and leaves and roses are from some dies I have had from some time and been in my die caddy on magnetic sheets so I do not know the name of them,the smaller flowers are from punches and are just the right size to complement the roses..all these were added with 3D glue gel..Shape your flowers for things like this and for cards ,they look so much more natural looking than just cut out flowers stuck down ,it is what makes the card or project..I have to make a box for it but as I have been up all night I need sleep first ,but I will put the picture on when I have finished ..Thanks for popping by :)xx
