Polkadoodles Royal Peacock - Altered Shoe

Hello All,

Very exciting day for us at PD towers, Nikky had a fabulous show on Create and Craft .. You can still find the show available to watch here ... you have to check out Nikky's amazing peacock!!!

Stamp Soup is one of my favourite Polkadoodle products, and I can't quite believe that the very first samples I have ever made for a TV show were stamp soup ones!! eeeeeeeeeeek

So I started with an Altered shoe ... This was originally a bright pink shoe .... I used to bbe able to wear shoes like this all the time, now however I stick to flats!! I wore these not long after I had my daughter and fell while pushing the pram ... I have never worn them since ...

I covered the shoe in Black Gesso ... and with indigo blu slap it on I covered it with glitter, and then used it again to seal it .... I stamped with the soup down the side of the shoe with gold embossing powder. I then stamped on heat resistant acetate to create the scallops that go down the side of the shoe ... the butterfly on the back of the shoe & the dimensional flower on the front of the shoe, & finally I added gems round the edge of the shoe.
