I wish I had boots at the bottom of the garden that were full of blooms light this. I wear big boots so they would need lots of blooms to fill them. I really really love how this card came together. Everything worked well, first idea each time. don't you love when that happens.
this image is a digital image that I have had for years and printed up years ago on watercolour paper but never got around to colouring. I had a clean out recently where I there away all those images I stamped or printed onto this cheap watercolour paper because I was having a few disasters and thought get rid of it and go good paper.
This image was caught between some other papers and missed.
I saw the JUGS Challenge #349: Photo Inspiration
and had to give it a go.
and thought I don't have any gumboot stamps but I really love that look. Was going through my pre stamped and printed images and saw this image I coloured so thought well give a go, worst comes to worst just toss it and start again.
The Zigs worked very well on it, again not using water, but one colour to blend with another for light and dark. Even did a pattern on the pink boot as is done on the one in the inspiration photo. Really pleased with that. Wee bit of bleed but barely. after I finished with the colouring I used the postage stamp die to cut out the image. Added a piece of pattern paper that looks like a fence pailing, then decided I needed coloured card stock for the main card rather than white. went with green and it all came together perfectly. Finished off with a die cut sentiment that was layered four times. the fourth layer is white glitter paper.
The layout I used was inspired by a sketch from Joanne at Paper players PP #301 A Sketch Challenge
so I will enter there though I just noticed I continued my pailing
layer from top to bottom so hope its close enough to still be relevant.
Image about 2 or 3 years old, old patterned paper and coloured cardstock so a real shop your stash this week.
Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
