Oooh New Boots- Amber's Crafts & Stuff #16 Red, White & Blue

Our Challenge over at Amber's Crafts & Stuff this week is Red, White & Blue, you can celebrate the holiday with your project, or as I have, simply use the colours. Remember we like to see all kinds of projects at Amber's, so feel free to make a household item, jewellery of whatever you can think long as it follows the challenge theme. 

This week we have a sponsor and was given this great Boots Image to play with, by Pattie. Please hop over to her Etsy site and take a look around at all the fun images she has here 
Having a sponsor means the winner will get a prize this week - 3 digis from Patties Creations - if you use one of Patties images on your project you will get two chances to win.  

A close up of my coloured image.
 I used promarkers and Sakura Glaze pens for this. 

My sheer red with hearts ribbon is Ribbon Girl, the blue is from my stash.
The Vintage looking button is one I pulled off a garment (previously made by me) before disgarding it.

Image ... Pattie's Creations

Hey Lin! Thanks for the heads up about that clipart site! I had actually removed the post because not long after I posted it I found the perfect image on Etsy. However, that site looks AWESOME, and will really help when I'm looking for a quick, specific item! Thanks! Have a great weekend.

xx Star
