Altered Shoe and Tutorial

I've always wanted to alter a real shoe. I have made paper ones but they just didn't satisfy my altering ego. So when I saw this shoe at Kmart I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.
Using Tsukineko All Purpose 70 Vegas Gold Ink and a dauber, apply first coat liberally all over shoe. Sponge on a second layer of thicker coating and heat set with a heat gun until the ink bubbles, see photo below, (always do this in a well ventilated room or outside when heat setting). 
 Apply Bo Bunny Frosting Jewels to the body of the shoe and Want2Scrap Bling strips around the edge. Tie 2 ribbons with a bow and attach to front and back of shoe with 2 way glue, trim off excess ribbon.
Stamp up Heartfelt Creation Stamps Arianna Blooms in Tsukineko Memento Inks: Bamboo Leaves, Pistachio, Olive Grove, Tuxedo Black and Northern Pine. Memento Luxe: Rhubarb Stalk, Rich Cocoa and Toffee Crunch. Fussy cut the flowers, apply ink to edge and middle of flowers with a dauber.
On a thick mouse pad, using 2 sizes of burnishers, large for the bigger flowers and small for the tinier flowers. Turn flower over and push the smaller burnisher into the end of each petal. Turn flower over to right side and push smaller of burnisher into the middle until the petals pop up. Pierce the middle of each layer of flower with an awl and put a brad through to hold all 4 layers.
Spray Imagine crafts Gold and Sparkle Sheer Shimmer onto each flower and set aside to dry. Tuck a sheet of white tissue paper into the shoe and attach leaves to the backs of the flowers, attach to the tissue paper with a hot glue gun.
Using the brush tip Fantastix and All Purpose 70 Vegas Gold Ink colour yellow brads, set aside to dry.
