ISS Sketch Challenge 8: Heels!

Hi All,

It's time for the InStyle Stamps monthly Sketch Challenge - happens on the second day of every month!  If you'd like to check out everything that the DT has done, please head over to the blog to see all the pics!

Once I saw these Heels, I thought I HAD to have them!  They are completely adorable, and there are so many possibilities...especially with colouring!  And I LOVE my colouring!  This is a sneak peek of sorts - these heels will not be released at the ISS store until the end of April.

Here is this month's sketch:


Okay, it looks pretty fun, right?  Here is what I came up with:

My card base is Whisper White...then come the layers: Basic Black, then Whisper White, then Raspberry Tart DSP.  The strip on the left is also Basic Black, Whisper White, and DSP.

I cut the main panel out of Basic Black CS and Raspberry Tart DSP with Label 7 Nesties, and added some pink rhinestones (from Michael's) to the sides.  I stamped the sentiment from Kraftin' Kimmie onto Whisper White CS in black ink, and cut it out with the Rounded Tab Punch.  After that was folded and added to the panel, I had to add some rhinestone to that one too.

For the flower, I punched out 5 pieces of DSP with my Scallop Circle punch, and made a vintage-type flower, like Mercy's HERE.  They are really fun and easy - just scrunch them all up, unwrap them, stick a brad through the middle, and arrange them as you like!  I added some fern branches underneath, made with a Martha Stewart punch and the DSP.

The heels were printed onto PTI White CS, coloured with Copics, cut out, and mounted on with Dimensionals.  I also had to add a rhinestone to the bow on each shoe - this card is so girly, I am choking on the estrogen! LOL

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
