Wellington Boots

Hello!
Have you ever had the urge to paint a pair of wellington boots?
I don't mean real ones, though I do have a wellington boot planter in my garden which I painted, no, I mean watercolour an image
Hey I maybe crazy but it's my birthday and I'm allowed Lol! 

So...Yesterday when hubby had gone to the match, I decide to play using a freebie image from a colouring page and those lovely confection watercolours


Then I got to thinking about the CAS Stencil Challenge this month...


...And a small raindrop stencil that hadn't been used, and a card came together, in my signature colours of course, which also fits the CAS Watercolour Challenge



I can't tell you the satisfaction painting wellies gave me haha... Then I had an unexpected visitor so after tossing some Mod Podge dimensional here and there, play soon came to an end.


I've had more visitors bearing gifts today - Lucky me! Plus DH and Mikey are taking me to dinner this evening so I'm going to relax for awhile...

Have a lovely day and I'll catch you soon

Happy Birthday Ros, this is such a great card. It manages to be cheery somehow and yet it depicts cool colour and rain! I love it and I particularly like the dimension you have created with the Mod Podge, I would never have thought of using that. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Stencil Challenge xx

Happy Birthday Ros! I hope you had a good day, and a wonderful dinner! Sounds devine! I've never coloured a pair of wellies, I love yours! What a great idea to added the rain drop stencil. I could sure use those boots yesterday, it rained non stop Friday night and all day Saturday, with heavy downpours at times, the rivers are up and the ditches are overflowing onto the roads in the low lying areas. Hugs,

Your watercoloured card is truly apt for the weather around here today, Ros. Great weather for ducks my mother would have said. I love the idea of watercoloured wellies - tickles me somehow and you have coloured them beautifully. Belated happy birthday wishes and I hope you enjoyed the celebration dinner!
Hugs
