The earth laughs and you can deal - Monika -Billie

Monday April 16, 2018
 
We're back with another challenge between Monika and Billie (that's me).. Monika from Creative with Monika  chose the theme for April (her birth month).. and of course she chose SHOES.. card 1 is a scene with shoes and card 2 is a background with shoes and sentiment..  I had so much fun creating both cards but I think the scene one is my favorite.
 
Card 1-  I started by creating my green hills and sky clouds using my template I created. I then found this wood grain plank paper so I darkened up the thin board on the edge to give an ending to the deck. I then stamped the Paper Trey ink pot and boots using Stampin up inks. I fussy cut them out and mounted them on the deck. I dug through my leaves and flower box and came up with these leaves and flowers. I added a flower and leaves to the deck so it looks like they fell off. The background was a little bare so I took Lawn fawn tree dies and Quick Quote scraps and added them. I then added the PTI sentiment.. I added Nuvo drops to the flower centers and it was complete. This took a long time to make but so worth it..

Card 2...  This card I used the Paper trey ink boots and leaves and sentiment. I stamped using Stampin up inks. I then took a scrap of Club scrap paper and heat embossed the PTI sentiment. I added this to the base and punched the SU flowers out of some Quick Quote scraps and added this to the side adding Nuvo drop to the center. I added some SU leaves.  This card was faster to make.. I can see there is a mistake.. can you see it??? why do I always see these things once its posted to my blog..LOL

Oh my such cute cards. Love both of them equally. The boot image is so sweet and I love how you created the scene in the first card, but the repetition of the image in the second one is terrific too. Thanks for sharing.
