I originally colored this image with the plans to make a card with it but it wasn't coming together just right for me. Then I saw the challenge for this week over at House Mouse & Friends Challenge Blog, which is to make an ATC using a House Mouse or Friends image. I knew this image would be perfect for the challenge.
An ATC is an artist trading card and measures 2 1/2" by 3 1/2". I thought I would make mine bright and vibrant so I used colors that were popular with the kids years ago for shoes. I have seen these colors coming back lately! I used the neon colors that Prismacolor no longer makes in their line of colored pencils. Thanks to my son he donated his neon colors to me to use!
Cardstock: Wausau Astro Brights
Printed Paper: Purchased at Hobby Lobby
Sentiment: Hero Arts
Image: House Mouse "Cozy Shoe" by Stampabilities
Techniques: Image colored with Prismacolor colored pencils
Circle Nestabilities and SU tab punch were also used
I wish the scan would show the true colors because the colors are really bright neon colors. I also applied Judikins Diamond Glaze to the tip of the shoe lace which doesn't really show in the scan very well.
Be sure to check out the other fabulous creations over at the House Mouse & Friends Challenge Blog!
