When I started to think about this card I knew that the one stamp I had to use is my trusty Clarity shoe stamp. I stamped it onto Kraft card stock, then onto a Post-it note and masked off the first shoe. I stamped it again while the first one was masked off and hey presto a pair of shoes ! I coloured them with Prisma pencils (not used these before and I'm not sure about them yet !) then covered parts of the shoes with Glossy Accents. The sentiment is from a Darkroom Door stamp set. I used the background stamp from the TH Papillon set and I used the script stamp from the TH French Marketplace set. I stamped with white Paint Dabber, dried it with my heat gun and then blended DI over the top. Used a damp piece of kitchen roll to rub over the top and the paint leaves a lovely resist effect. The left hand panel is made using a mix of TH, Katzelkraft and Tanda Stamps. The cage is a Poppy Die cut and I've just tipped it with a little Barn Door DI.
The flowers are cut from Crinoline using the TH Tattered Flowers die and coloured using Barn Door Distress Stain and DI. The ribbon is seam binding that I've dyed with Distress Stains too. A type charm,tag and a couple of tickets and that was it !
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
- Craft your Passion - Anything goes
- Charisma Cardz - Masking technique
- PaperPlay - Something old (Clarity shoe stamp), something new (Poppy cage die)
Right, must crack on !
