There goes that shoe again!

I just love this image which I bought yesterday from Chris Dark of Sketching Stamper Digi stamps.
I still can't colour it as well as she does.. maybe I could do with a few lessons. I used some Derwent Inktense pencils and a water brush to do the colouring. I really like them, but haven't totally mastered the technique just yet.
I used the sketch from Truly Scrumptious for this card but transposed it as I felt that the image worked better on the right-hand side of the card.
I think that this shoe will be getting quite a few more outings!
Welcome drop of rain last night, but I hope it will be fine for the rest of the weekend for Daisy's 1st birthday celebrations!


  1. mmm, rich colours and fab layout. Love how you've pieced those flowers together, compliments the shoe to perfection


  2. Absolutely beautiful Chrissie and once again I'm so glad you liked the image, you've really made the shoe look fabulous and I think your painting is perfect. Love how you finished the card off with the gorgeous flowers. Hope Daisy has a lovely birthday. Chris x
