I started by die cutting a panel from water color paper. I stamped the ladies on the panel leaving some space on the left side. Next i colored the ladies with distress markers, adding color were i wanted the color the darkest and used water and a paint brush to spread the color out.

Then i used a wavy die to trim off the excess panel that wasn;t stamped. I found a pink card base that matched my coloring and i added the panel with foam tape to it.

Then i stamped the sentiment 'Shopping is my Cardio', it fit perfectly in the wave. Last i found some enamel dots that matched and added them to my card!
