Shoes - water colour pencil

A girl can never have too many shoes. They're the accessory for your feet with both purpose and style. A friend knows this and loves you just the same.

This card features an All Dressed Up digital stamp, Unity Stamps sentiment, Prima Marketing gems, and Simple Stories patterned paper.


These are not affiliate links just the products I use and where you can find them, too (if they're not retired).

Putting It Together

Even though I don't have as many shoes as some, I do understand the draw to buy/possess many pairs in a variety of colours and styles. But, it is one of the girly things that I just don't do *laugh*

The image was one of those I coloured while traveling from BC, Canada to Missouri to visit family (and see the eclipse totality). I printed and stamped several images and cut each on to a small panel I could hold in my hand while colouring. I used watercolour pencils and waterbrushes while in the airports and even on the planes. Three planes and two long layovers, colouring helps to soothe my soul and keep me from going bonkers (especially since I accidentally left my phone at home and my audible book and music along with it).

A closer view of the shoes. Bad hotel lighting + cell phone.

I fussy cut the shoes and found a very cute paper for a background. I dry fit the shoes.

I decided to use the YNS sketch as the layout for this card.

I edged the patterned paper with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide to give it a finished look. I used foam mounting tape to give the shoes dimension. I added a rhinestone between the shoes to link them.

On the inside, I used scrap from the front flipped to the pattern on the back and added a sentiment in pink, "A friend is one who knows all about you and loves you just the same."
