Hero......

Today's card......
I was inspired by three challenges to make this card....
I started by using a couple of shades of red Brusho's and spraying water.
The boots where stamped in black ink ....I used water and a brush to take off most of the red.
The sentiment has been die cut and another layer of black foam added for dimension.
The bottom of the die cut sentiment has frantage heat embossing on it.
I love this stuff as it adds interest and is dual colour.
The black horizontal lines on the left have been stenciled and gold embossing added.

And.....

Now this is one cool card!!! Love the addition of the gold accents - it contrast so well with the overall grunge and elevates that card to a whole new level!

I love your sense of aesthetics and your creativity. Brusho background is as always great, and surprisingly for the background color of men's shoes. It's the perfect, surprising combination makes the card does not leaves no one indifferent. I love your surprising combination.

Beautifully CAS. I love the splash of red as a base for the shoes. The touch of gold on the sentiment and on the horizontal lines adds a lovely touch :) X
