Welly and Flowers

The Pink Elephant challenge this week is to use the following colours:

Pink, Green and Brown

And all I can say is that this was a pure Eureka moment! I was really struggling of how to add green into a card when I remembered I had this welly template from Craftwork Cards. And wellies are green! Add some flowers (pink and brown of course) and ta-dah! Challenge met!

The green card is from my stash and I've chalked it vigorously to give it some definition and highlights. I really enjoy using chalks - it takes me back to when I was at college and used a lot of charcoal and chalks when I did life drawing classes.


The flowers have been cut using my lovely Cuttlebug flowers die and the papers are yet more off cuts from Huge Funky Love - the card candy is from Craftwork Cards.

And this card will be for my Mum for Mothers Day - so organised eh?!

Can't believe how well you have done the chalking !!! *I thought it was a real welly at first. Amazing and a really effective card.

I have to agree with Ann! That looks like a real Welly (here we call them rubber, rain or barn boots). Amazing. When I first clicked on your link, I thought you had made flower decorations for your boots. The chalking makes that boot come to life. I am in awe! Thanks for joining us at TPE this week!
