Inspiration Destination #32 - Plant the world in flowers and spread love

Wednesday May 6, 2015
 
 

 
Our sponsor this week is JUST INK LINED
 I am using the image called Men gardening boots..  I love the L R on the boots. (but I think they are backwards.. they should be switched)  I tried to make them look used. I know my hubby does the yard work and gardening most of the time. He is retired and I still work so it falls on him for now.  I do plant garlic and do weed it when necessary.  I thought this card could also fit as a fathers day card.  I made my own background again. I took a piece of water color paper and various sprays and liquid paint and colored the water color paper first then used some stencils and clear embossing paste or texture paste and added it through the stencils, I really like the shine it gives and reflects nicely, because I colored the background first then added the clear paste it bled through giving a nice shine to the design.. It feels masculine even with the purples/greens/golds/bronze colors.. I love the look. 
I hope you find time to play along and remember its always anything goes.
