Beccy’s Place Challenge this month has a sketch theme to follow. As with all her challenges Beccy provides a free image each month and this month was a pair of boots a great image for the men. As the boots come without laces I found a quote from Harry Styles to go with them, I hope he will not mind!
Beccy’s Place Boots (freebie available from challenge blog)
X-Cut square die set
X-Cut scalloped rectangle die
brown textured card and green card
X-Press It card
K & Company Life’s Journey London Map 12×12 paper
Vintage Photo Distress Ink
The boots and the quote are printed out together on X-Press It card and coloured with Copics then cut with a square die. A slightly larger mat is cut with the next size die.
The designer paper is cut with a scalloped edged rectangle die (I don’t have a square one). The card is assembled as in the picture with the two sizes of green circles punched out using a Cropodile.
The trickiest part of this card was cutting a scalloped square with only a scalloped rectangle. It was a case of careful positioning of the die so as not to cut in the wrong place.
I have coloured in a lot of boots over the past couple of years, not least because my youngest daughter’s wedding had a walking theme so the invites, place name card and order of service all had boots on. The place name cards had a very small pair of boots on them! Also since she, her husband and my husband are all keen walkers boots have appeared on several birthday cards. It’s a good job I like colouring boots!
Thanks for walking in. Take care.
