Giddy Up!

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I started by creating a patterned paper for my boots. I stamped the little trio swirl stamp from the Woodware Tatty Butterflies Stamp Set lots of times onto Coconut White Card with CS Decadent Grape Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. Once a suffient area was covered, I dusted with an Anti-Static Bag and stamped the Woodware Riding Boots using Clear Perfect Medium. I added CS Black Detail Embossing Powder and heat set.  I added a little Seedless Preserves Distress Crayon from Set 2 to my Craft Sheet and used a Water Brush to paint in some of the areas of the boots. I added a little Midnight Sky CS Pixie Powder to deepen the colour and painted in the soles. I scribbled some more crayon onto my Craft Sheet and added a little White Pearl CS Pixie Powder to lighten the colour. I used this to paint some of the detail areas of the boots. Once the paint was dry, I cut the boots out using scissors.

I created a sentiment border panel by stamping several of the stamps from the Woodware Deco Sayings Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using CS Decadent Grape Colour Cloud (brilliant idea pinched from Jane Gill). I also stamped the smaller of the roses from the Woodware Deco Dragonfly Stamp Set, to separate the sentiments. I edged the panel with Decadent Grape Colour Cloud and matted onto Black Card. I popped onto a piece of Coconut White Card, matted onto Black Card and then onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I stamped the sentiment from the Woodware Riding Boots Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite A2 Card Front Basics and edged with Decadent Grape Colour Cloud. I cut the next sized die out of Black Card.

I finished my card by adding a 5mm Black Pearl to the corners.

Thanks for stopping by.
