Forever in love ... with shoes


They are having a red and/or pink with hearts challenge and this is my entry for it ... I just got this stamp in the mail last week from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design and I figured it was perfect for my first challenge ... I did a pretty plain card because of the silver on the designer paper and the pink bling brads that I didn't want to distract from the image with anything more. I used R22, R32, R29, RV17, RV02, V12, E04, E00, E33, E25, E37, Y11, Y21, YR24, B00 & C3 copic markers (I don't have too many red's or pink's) to color in the image that I stamped with angel pink memento ink ... then I went over parts with a black marker to outline everything but the girl. I cut the "princess" designer paper (I was saving for a scrapbook page for Kylie oh well) so that the "so girly" and "one of a kind" were the words showing below the image ... because shoes are a girl thing and I am shoe-nique.

Sorry about the flash glare but I was trying to get the silver (to match the outside of the card) embossed "with" to show up shiny ... I need a new camera! Here is the inside of the card ...
