DT for Vintage Elusions- Ephemera

good morning everyone well it was a challange and a half this weekend doing the dt for Vntage Elusions  but saying that i had fun making it...

we are sponsored by sassy studio designs who is offering the winner 4 digis,

Robyns Fetish who is offering the winnwe 5 digis 

and Delicious Doodles who is offering the winner 4 digis  

so this time the theme is ephemera and if you like me and havent got a clue how to say the word never mind know what it is below is a quick definition..

What is ephemera?
If you've heard the word ephemera and wondered what it is, here you go. Ephemera is anything that wouldn't normally be considered something to collect, save, cherish or keep (or for that matter, display on a scrapbook page). Make sense? If not, here's a list of some items that might be considered ephemera (and this is just a very small list):
- playing cards
- postcards
- dominoes

- tarot cards
- coin and paper money
- ticket stubs
- lottery tickets
- game pieces
- office objects like paper clips, post its, Rolodex cards
- keys
- toothpicks
- tiles or mosaics
- old maps
- miniature items such as those found in doll house stores
- compasses
- glass
- watch parts
- packaging of all kinds
- magazine ads
- old book pages
- wire
- plastic and acryllic
- feathers, leaves etc.

so baring that in mind here is what i made using fallen angel by delicious doodles 

so i decided to make a victorian shoe.

i changed from team b to team a so only had the weekend to do this and didnt have any newspaper of really anything on the list lol so i decided to make my own 'newspaper' 
i did this by stamping my the 'writing' (from alys inky fingers) on to paper then using my tim holts distress reinker i spritzed it and left to dry.
i then cut out the template agian from the paper and glues it to the shoe.
then i used the left over paper to make paper flowers.
then i inked the edges of the digi before adding it to the front of the shoe
i added card candie, leaf and a domino.

this is the side view of the show so you can see the wooden domino.

and the other side showing the flowers and the leaf (can see this better from front view)
