When Nichole issued this challenge to the Papertrey Ink senior DT I felt a little blank. That boot from Papertrey Ink's Green Thumb set is stinkin' adorable but Ive played a ton with it and was worried I had exhausted all my ideas. The next morning I woke up with a card formed in my imagination...I was elated! I had paged through an issue of Papercrafts... a bunch of issues actually so I can't recall the specific one...when I ran across a super cute bag that Nichole had done that was inspired by a froggy rain boot. Ella has the Ladybug version and it didn't even click until my brain had a rest that I could use the boot and some google eyes to create a Ladybug Rain Boot card!
Here is the finished card. I stamped the boot with red ink then trimmed it out. I then used black stickles to cover the white dots and the other black parts of the boot. It's not showing up a ton...but this sweet boot has sparkle! The puddle was created by punching out a post it note with the larger oval punch from SU! then using the negative side as a mask while sponging on the inside with a light blue. I gently applied stardust stickles to give it an extra sparkle touch. I would have used Waterfall stickles instead but I ran out... if you make this card use that instead ...it would look so much better.
This was a fun challange... make sure that you check out the other participants and see what they came up using this fun boot! I would love to see what you made with this fun boot as well. :)
