Shoe Week: Fantasy Shoe & Clutch

OK - I had the most fun making this shoe and clutch! This style is influenced from watching Carlos' tutorial (go to http://www.carlosnmolina.com/ to watch!) It is so so fabulous! The HEEL! Yes, don 't you just love that heel! This is totally inspired by Carlos! I used his concept for the heel and added textured paper for the top of the shoe instead of ribbon (that's because I didn't have any 2-1/2" wired ribbon but now I gotta get me some). They do make these shoes in real life - right?

Side view: Entire shoe (including top/bottom soles) has texture made from the Big Shot SU Exclusive Background I Texturz plate. The front of the shoe is embellished with beads and pearls threaded through wire. The wires are then threaded through a small punched hole and secured with tape.

Another view of heel - heel height is 2-1/2":

Shoe front:
