A friend asked me to make her a 40th birthday card to give to a friend. The theme I was given was 'shoes and handbags'. After a little bit of searching I came across the perfect thing in the Wedding section at Just Inklined - their Fashion Shoe and Wedding Purse digi stamps.
The feather effect on the back of the shoe, made me think of peacock feathers, so I decided to to for that kind of colour combination. To help me (and to give me an idea of the shading on a shoe), I made myself a mood board.
I started with using the PNG versions of both files, so I could place the bag slightly behind the shoe. The image was printed onto 300gsm Elegance card. I chose the following Promakers to colour the image:
These picture hopefully show the stages of colouring in the image. Am getting better at it - but still need a lot of practice. If you have any colouring advice or tips, please feel free to leave a comment on this post.
And here is the finished card.
I used a 6" square base card, with a large green mat. The next layer of white is embossed with the XCut A4 Butterfly Pattern embossing folder, and edged with the Umber pen. The strip of mink card is Centura Pearl embossed with Grand MBossabilities Dainty Dots, and the blue layer is Bazzill Bling. I used a little Cosmic Shimmer Aqua Twinkles on the flowers, and the ribbons and pearls are from my stash. Finally the numbers were cut with XCut Roma Alphabet die set.
Passion for Promarkers have an 'Anything Goes' Challenge this week - so am going to enter this card.
