It's not about the shoes

Today I have a simple and sparkly card to share with you. On this card I used image and one of the sentiments from Ballet Shoes #709 Digi set. It is also available as rubber stamp.

I like digital stamps because I can resize them as needed. Image is colored with alcohol base markers. I added some tiny pearls for decoration. Edges of the matting layer are covered with  1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and  Bubble Gum glitter.

Background layer is covered with 3/4" Double-Sided "Tear-ific" Tape. After removing protective sheet I added some texture with Dreamweaver Damask stencil and Dreamweaver White Embossing Paste. Then paste was dry, I covered tape with Aqua Marine Glitter.

I tell you a secret. It' looks like entire back layer is covered with glitter, but it isn't. I added "Tear-ific" Tape only around the edges. This way you can save the glitter and image layer stays on the card much better.

Dobermans are lovely dogs but their look makes me cautious. So I decided to showcase him on a feminine card. I like how it turned out. This majestic dog is very nice in front of pink and silver background.

Doberman is from Hearts Like Dogs #708 Digi set. After printing it out, I colored him with markers. I used the die from Radiant Rectangles set to trace an oval around the dog and fussy cut it out.
Layer behind the dog is covered with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Tinsel embossing powder.

Kraft cardstock is used for the background. I made it bit fancier with stamping. I used Spun Sugar distress ink to stamp Crackle Background #609 and text from Journal Mixed Media  #606 set. It looked very lovely and delicate. Next day, then I continued with the card, all the stamping was gone... This ink color was just too light to show up on the kraft after it dried. So I re-stamped everything, but this time with Worn Lipstick distress ink. After it was dry, I used VersaMark ink to stamp flourishes from  Flourishes Two stamp set #520 and heat embossed them with Tinsel embossing powder.

All pink layers are inked with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Cotton Candy EP.

I used white satin ribbon and piece of silver twine as embellishments.

On my card I used Ballet 709 digi version DIGI709. Image is colored with alcohol base markers. Image layer is fussy cut and edges are inked with Memento Desert Sand ink. Matting layer is die cut with largest die from  Spellbinders Labels Thirty-Six set out of cardstock which was covered with 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape". After adhering image layer in center, I covered rest of the tape with  Purple Rain microfine glitter.

Laces of the shoes are covered with Sakura Glue Pen and Lavender Iris glitter. I added some pearls around the image as embellishments.
Background is simple but thanks to Sparkle N Soft it's very pretty. I added 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" to the piece of white cardstock. Tape was covered with Blissful Blue Sparkle N Soft. As the name says: it sparkle and it's soft. Just beautiful! I dry embossed pattern to one side of the layer with Dreamweaver Chevron Background stencil.

I used my new Spellbinders Hydrangea die to make the flower. Petals was die cut out of white cardstock which was previously inked with Shaded Lilac Distress Inks. I scribbled dots with Sakura Glue Pen and added Purple Rain glitter in center of each blossom. Sprigs was die cut out of watercolor cardstock which was colored with Pine Needles, Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks.
Leftover piece from flower petals was added behind the image layer. You can see it better on the first photo.
