Witches Shoes Tag

Every Witch needs a great pair of boots and a fancy gold broom.  
The boots were cut from Grungeboard using the Alterations Ice Skate die. 
I snipped off the skates and painted the remaining boots with a generous coat of Black Soot Distress Crackle paint.  After that dried I covered the entire thing with Black Soot Distress Ink using a Blending Tool to brighten the color.  The heel was made glossy by adding Glossy Accents.

I added alternating purple and green mini eyelets along the edge and added Black Tinsel Twine for the lacings.  I attached the boots to the card using hot glue and foam tape.
The broom was made using part of a bamboo barbecue skewer, washi tape and gold tinsel.  I often use tinsel in my projects.  Simple pull apart a tinsel garland and hot glue pieces to the stick until it was full and looked like a broom.  THen I hot the tinsel with the heat gun to make it curl.  Not all tinsel reacts this way so practice first. 
Hope your Halloween is filled with Sunshine and GLITTER.
