a rainbow and shoes

"Rainbowed" a shoe recently (you'll understand during next week's STAMPlorations blog hop ;) and couldn't resist pulling out the shoes again when I saw the current Fusion challenge. Cuz I saw a rainbow and boots. Those are shoes, right???


The inspiration photo from The Challenge influenced the style of my rainbow.
Meet my rainbow and shoes.


A healthy dose of masking and stamping and masking and stamping again gave me my heap of shoes. I stamped my sentiment (used Adirondack ink and Groovy Shoes for all stamping) and then taped my panel down and applied Gansai Tambi watercolors. I adhered the panel to a pink cardbase.

For those of you, like me, who don't own a Misti but stamp on bumpy watercolor paper anyway ... I went over the rough spots of the sentiment with a black Sharpie. You can only tell if you look real close!

I'm sharing this card at Penny Black and More - Birthdays too!
