Big Shoes

I am so excited about this card!! I am trying to use more brights in my cards as mine are usually more muted colours. I saw this stamp ages ago on a card someone had made and was so chuffed the other day when I found it in a digi. It is by Mo Manning and you can get hold of it at Mo's Digital Pencil!! I did buy some others, which you will see on a card near you soon!!

So this digi is called big shoes and I think it is just adorable! I have coloured it with my ProMarkers and I think I am getting there with my technique. I have been practising so hard! It is good if you have an image that has markings on to help with the shading, like on the clothes with this image. I found a really good tutorial by Kim from Just Wordz. You can find this on her blog at
It is definitely the best one I have been able to find! It is in 4 parts just in case you have a look and wonder why it stops part way through .. but it is fab!! Thanks Kim! :)
