Kristina's Colour Challenge #39.

It's time for another one of Kristina's Colour Challenges (gosh that week went fast!) and this time the colours are Basic Black, Real Red, So Saffron, Whisper White and Green Galore (or another green).
I don't know why, but as soon as I saw the colours for Kristina's Challenge I immediately thought of shiny black gumboots! Weird, I know!!
Anyway, armed with the idea of gumboots and after a lot of mucking around with the colour combination, this is what I came up with......

This one was a real challenge for me because I started off with a Real Red card base that was layered with So Saffron and I had every intention of using layers of Green Galore as well, but after giving that about 3 hours of my time I just couldn't seem to make it work! So I decided to start again, simplify my card and change from Green Galore to Old Olive and it finally just came together! (No extra points for me Kristina!)
To add some dimension I have popped the whole white section up on dimensionals and the 2 Saffron flowers are also popped up on dimensionals. Then to add a bit of interest I have paper pierced a 'frame' around the picture and put Crystal Effects on the little boots to make them shiny! (you may need to click on the picture to see the shine).
Hope you like my card and thanks for dropping by,



Stamps: Simply Said, Flower Filled (retired). Inks: Basic Black, Old Olive, So Saffron, Real Red. Card stock: Bali Breeze DSP, Old Olive, Whisper White. Accessories: Crystal Effects, Rich Regals Brads. Tools: Aqua Painter, Stamp-a-majig, Paper piercing.
