Cheer Up Boots - Stampin' Up! Flowering Rain Boots

   I was able to create another card combining two great challenges!  I used the layout over at Freshly Made Sketches and the choice board from Festive Friday.  Festive Friday is celebrating World Planting Day so the choices are all sorts of outdoors-y planting things.  I chose to use flowers/plants, green, encouragement, Wellington boots and stencils.

  Hopefully this will be a card for someone who needs some cheering up.  I enjoyed using the bright colors and pulling in different elements from the choices.  The big open center panel on the sketch leaves a lot of room for all kinds of images.  The boots and tulips seem to fit the space just right.  I used one of the masks from Basic Patterns set and angled it and faded it out as the pattern went up just for a little bit different look.

  For all of the images I filled them in a bit using ink pads and a blender pen.  I still have some of the retired cardboard wrapped baker's twine in Calypso Coral so I added a bow on the side of the boot for just a little detail.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
