Papertrey Ink March 2014 Blog Hop #2

For my second card for the Papertrey March Blog Hop,  I was drawn to the shiny teal boots in the inspiration photo above. I love pretty rain boots, and the shinier, the better. Again I turned to Green Thumb to use this great polka dot boot image in the set. These boots are clear embossed with pink pigment ink and three layers of clear embossing powder. I combined these boots with images from another oldie, Scattered Showers. The "mud puddle" the boots are sitting in is actually made using an oval die, Spring Rain card stock and Glossy Accents. (For some unknown reason this photographed more teal than it appears IRL).





Supplies:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Green Thumb, Scattered Showers, Polka Dot Basics 2
Ink: Colorbox pigment inks, PTI Fresh Snow and Spring Rain die ink
Cardstock: PTI; Green plaid designer paper: my stash
Clear Embossing powder
Dies: PTI 2-1/4 inch Limitless Layers; Lil' Inkers Stiched Mats; SSS: Postage Stamp Edge dies
