Howdy Cowboy! - Monday 5th November

Good Morning Friends!

Thank you for your comments about yesterday's Dreamweaver card, I will get a tutorial on here very soon, promise!

Today's card is a 6x6 card made with this cute little cowboy LOTV stamp...

I matted and layered the  dark brown card and then black card on a kraft card blank and then added a final layer of 'cowboy' backing paper from a 'boys' 8x8 paper pad from my stash. I also cut into the edge of the black card to create a 'fringe' .Although I referred to the boys pad as paper, it's quite thick and the images are raised and glossy. From some of the left over card, I also cut our some of the images to use as embellishments and the greeting.

The image is coloured in with Promarkers, but I wanted it to remain quite understated. I then cut a rectangle in brown using Spellbinders Classic Rectangles. I did the same with the image, using the outside the die technique with the feather. I then tore around the edge and inked with Antique Photo distress ink. I finished off by adding some little screw top brads and coloured some string with Antique Photo to make it look more like a rope lasso.

Thanks for stopping by today!
