Green Wellies !

This is my card for the following challenges :

The wellies are from a Joanna Sheen stamp set and I've stamped them with black Memento ink and then shaded with Pro Markers. I've cut them out with a deckle edged Nestability and sponged Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint Distress inks around the edge before removing the die and then blended some more around the edge once the die was removed. The quote is from a set of Serendipity stamps and I've treated this the same as the wellies apart from I've used the leaves from a Rubber Stamp Tapestry set and stamped at the bottom of the quote.

The dotty background paper is Pink Petticoat Angel Dots in Olive and I've blended some more Distress ink around the edge. The leaves are also from the same Serendipity set as the quote. I cut the top piece of paper into the shape as per the sketch and then put another piece underneath. I've then randomly stitched around the edge of the top layer. The pearls are coloured with my Moss ProMarker.

I had great fun making this card as I am so in love with the colour green at the moment, especially when I'm using my Distress Inks at the same time ! I keep looking at the new colours that have been released I can see a few of them coming my way in the not too distant future !

Thanks for looking
