Sunday’s blog a Step by step
Today we are the the NEC Trade show, and I will probably be teetering round on high-heels, doing an imitation of a very tall businesswoman!
I drew this sketchy shoe years ago.
It has to be one of THE most versatile stamps we have ever made.
What else do we need...
Cocktail Pink Promarker
Antique Pink Promarker
Stamp the Shoe in Black Archival on Theuvacard
Add the little Kasha ladies, too, but use the Black Adirondack. Primarily because we are going to colour in with Promarkers, and Black Archival and Promarkers don’t work together very well.
Stamp the shoe on a sheet of copy paper
and cut out the toe and heel.
Cover up the stamped shoe with the mask.
The copy paper mask shows you exactly what we are planning here...
So using your Black Adirondack, stamp little Kasha through the opening, just like the mask shows you.
If you look now, you can see that I have coloured in between the little women in a dark pink, and only added a little shade to the actual dresses with the lighter pink.
I have put the copy paper mask in place, so that you can see the progress, but when I was colouring in I did remove it!
Now colour in Kasha everywhere else, with the lighter colour.
The set is pretty clever, even if I say so myself:
Wish Shoe were here
and you even get the little Kasha and a mini Sketchy shoe, too!
Drag the chisel end of the Cocktail Pink Promarker around the edges of the card for the matching border.
See how the repeat stamping of the mini Kasha gives you a great shoe pattern!
I’d wear them! But this sort of lovely shoe doesn’t usually come in my size. The shoes which come in my size are usually pretty abysmal. Most shoe shops have a sad looking section for women with abnormally large feet, like me.
You know the ones, the very long, flat ones, which look more like little canoes.
Have you ever seen those films, where the bloke drinks champagne out of the woman’s shoe? Dave would be slaughtered!!!
Size 9 sucks.
Now take the Large Kasha and stamp her at the end of a long folded card.
Colour her in. SO. If I am colouring her in with Promarkers,
which ink pad did I use?
Just want to check you’re paying attention!
Mount the Shoe piece.
There. Isn’t that lovely.
You can add a mini shoe on the inside too...
If I had more time,
I would start up a shoe company for women with large feet.
It’s all very well squeezing myself into a full-body Spanx, very slimming and sexy; but what’s the point if the only footwear I can find is either mens’ Mocassins or Clowns’ shoes!
