Don't fall over in shock that there is a 2nd post within the week! I have another 30th party on, though I sadly can't go as I didn't get the shift off as I had requested :-( We won't mention rosters, as we are getting a new rostering system that gives us no requests, no choice, essentially no life. "Not happy, Jan!"
Anyway, back to the card. Sarah is well known for her love of shoes and has a shoe theme for her party. I searched high & low for a shoe stamp to no avail, so thought of looking for a digi-stamp image. Boy did I hit the jackpot (IMHO LOL). I found this amazing sketch image. I didn't mean to copy it so completely, thought about doing in in blues, but my Purely Pomegranate (retired, sob) & Rich Razzleberry were calling to me. The original is coloured in Copics, which I don't own, so I printed it onto watercolour paper and used inks and an aquapainter. I added glitter using a 2-way glue pen. I must admit, I am very chuffed with the result. The wonderful Keesh did a fabulous easel card tutorial on her blog this week (just scroll down within this post) , so that leant the final touch. Thanks Keesh!
Here is a side view to show how the easel stands up:
Don't you just love that scrummy Purely Pomegranate ribbon? Sadly there is only a little left on my roll. I can't wait til the new catty comes out, there are, finally, lovely stick on pearls & rhinestones, definitely on my wish list (oh, my wish list is sooo long!!!). The 'Happy Birthday' is a sneak peak from the new catty. It is from a stamp set that we got as a surprise freebie at convention.
I better get going,
Have a great day,
Love Fi xox
ETA this was meant to be a scheduled post for Tues, oh well. I hit the wrong button, DUH!
