Your Favourite Things !

This week at Passion for ProMarkers we're asking you to show us your favourite things on your cards. The sponsor for this week is Secret Crafter and the prize is 6 ProMarkers ! You've probably guessed...lol.....but one of my favourite things are my walking boots ! I bought this image from The Digi Shack some time ago for an order so when I saw the challenge for this week I thought I could give them another outing ! I' ve used the fab sketch over at Stamping 411 for my card and I'm also putting this card in for the challenge over on Tuesday Taggers, which is Shoes, glorious shoes. The background paper is K&Co and then for the bottom piece I've used Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint Distress Inks to colour the card then used a Paper Artsy stamp which I've inked up with Shabby Shutters and then used Peeled Paint to add some accents through it. This gives a really great effect making parts of the image seem further away and adding some depth.

The top piece of card has been embossed using the Distressed Stripes EF then I've rubbed Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint over it. The border is a Martha Stewart punch and I've layered it so you just see the very edge. I've used Nesties to cut out the main image and sponged some Tea Dye Distress Ink around the image before removing the die.

Well with all of this good weather that's supposed to be coming our way my boots should get some use, they won't look as clean as these though.....lol.....

Thanks for looking
