Glittery Green Rubber Boots Card

Hi! I thought I'd post a card this afternoon so I could play along with Kristina Werner's latest color challenge! The colors she chose are some of my favorites! Here is her inspiration for us:



And, here is what I made:



Goodies:
All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Scene From a Garden set
Ink: Chocolate Chip Classic Ink; Jet Black Staz On
Paper: Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, and Confetti White cardstock
Accessories: Kiwi Kiss striped grosgrain ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds, Crystal Effects, Aqua Painter, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Dimensionals

I love seeing these rubber boots all lined up! I thought it would be fun to create a card with fun funky boots that stood out among the rest... and, I thought the sentiment stamp worked perfectly!

I stamped the boots first, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to create a straight line. Next, I watercolored them all using residual ink from my Chocolate Chip ink pad. Then, I stamped a pair of boots on to Kiwi Kiss cardstock and added Crystal Effects for gloss, and Dazzling Diamonds for glitter! When it dried, I added it to my card front, using dimensionals so they really stand out. I stamped my sentiment and added ribbon and there you go! Quick and cute!

Anyways, hope you are all having a lovely day! Hee!

This card is so simple and yet eyecatching! Great idea to use the Crystal Effects and glitter to make the boots stand out! I think it reminds us all of our childhoods!
