2 Challenges ~ One Post

I am inspired today by two different challenges, yet they very much have something in common. Here is the card that was created for both challenges~ What makes them similar? Well, over on Aaron's Blog she challenges us to get inspired by this photograph. {below} Sooo cute! While over on the Heart 2 Heart Blog we are challenged to recycle this week. How funny to me, because that's exactly what's happening in this photograph. If I had some old worn out rain boots, I would totally create planters with them. What a stylish way to recycle!! To begin my project, I have this 12x12 bag bulging at the seams with scraps of card stock as well as some B&T papers. I hate to throw anything away. I'm certain that I will get around to using it again.

Perfect! I find some scraps of brightly colored card stock similar to those in the photograph. I stamp a couple of rain boots on them.



After cutting them out I decided to make them appear shiny just like a real rain boot does. For this I press the boot directly on a versamark pad, sprinkle with clear embossing powder, and heat to a shiny appearance.




A few slick rain boots, just hangin' out!



You have to see miss Aarons cards over on her blog and check out the thrifty recyclers on the H2H blog also!


Thanks for stopping by!
