Tilda As Clown ~ Buttons and Bows at The Ribbon Girl

Happy Sunday Dear Bloggers!

Can't believe it's the last Sunday of April already.
It is also the Magnolia Only Challenge at The Ribbon Girl Blog.
The theme for this week is ~ Buttons and Bows.
Prizes for this challenge are a stamp from Magnolia Sweden and
a £10 voucher towards a spending spree at The Ribbon Girl.

I thought I should challenge myself to create something other then
my usual shabby style and use colors that I normally don't use.
So here are a couple of clown boot cards. 

I colored the Tilda As Clown image with Distress Ink pads.

I wanted to make a clown boot shaped card that goes with the image.
Failing to find a cut-file on the web, I decided to make my own template.

It took me a while to assemble the first boot.
Once I got it going, it took no time to make the second one.

The boot with 2 removable tags on top measures approximately
5.5" (W) x 5.5" (H).  The green boot is 1/4" shorter.

I ran out of top stitching thread so I did faux stitching this time.
It actually turned out better as it is less bulky for gluing. 
I also used the white gel pen to draw the eyelets.

DPs: MajaDesign Walking in the Forrest and Life in the Country Collection
Dies: Magnolia, Memory Box, and Stampin'Up

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
Ivory, natural and dusky blue button twines, star wooden buttons,
light lemon yellow and blue sweetheart blossom flowers,
8mm Rebecca cluny lace, 18mm Teresa cluny lace,
1/8" sticky tape.

We would love it if you can join in the fun creating.
