Shoe - Prismacolour pencil

A lovely strappy shoe as a vision in pink, this card features a Sheepski Designs digital stamp, Prismacolour pencil, and die cutting with other embellishments.

Putting It Together

Pink!! A monochrome card in various shades of pink. 

I printed the digital stamp on lightweight watercolour cardstock several months ago and put it in my image stash.

On an earlier project I discovered Prismacolour pencils work wonderfully on the watercolour surface. I used a limited palette of Blush Pink, Pink, Crimson Red, Process Red, White, and Dark Umber.

I gave the card a bit of shine with foiled cardstock matting. I double cut the image and matting and single cut a patterned paper panel. I decided to trim the patterned paper with a double cut after I dry fit them together.

I found the sizing I wanted and used washi tape to hold the die in place.

I dry fit them on the card base and added a bit of die cutting that's been in my stash from an earlier project I didn't use it for.

I decided to add a bit more to the background and used a Simon Says Stamp stencil with Distress ink and Clarity brush.

I dry fit them together and liked the feel. Good thing, too, since I had stenciled directly on the card base.

I added the patterned paper to the card base and added the pieces of the cut die cut. I cut the die cut in the middle so I could spread it to both sides.

I used foam mounting tape under the foiled matting of the image to give it dimension. I added glittered velvety hydrangea flowers and glittery dots.

Inside, I stenciled with a mask to leave a clear central area with the stenciling detail. I used a Unity Stamps sentiment as an affirmation to match the theme of the card.
