Ride 'em Cowboy!

     Another wonderful Friday to start the weekend and that means a new challenge over at QKR Stampede.  We've made a change since it's a new year and we're going to be an "Anything Goes" challenge from now on but we will also offer an OPTIONAL twist if you care to use it.  So, our theme this week is "Anything Goes" and our twist is "For the Kids."  If you want to use the twist, just do a card that's meant especially for a child.  You're not required to use a stamp from QKR Stampede, but if you do, your card will be entered into a special drawing just for QKR users.  That really increases your chances of winning!  :-D

     This week, I used two images from QKR; Digi 7704 "Ride 'em Cowboy" and Digi 17009 "Western Sign" which I used for the sentiment.  In the actual image, the sign is blank - I added that sentiment so that I could use the card as a congratulations card for a child.


     I started by coloring the image and I used a combo of ProMarkers, chalks, and a couple of Copics to get all the subtle shades I wanted.  Although I use other things for coloring, I have to admit that alcohol markers are still my favorite.

     The image is cut with a simple square die from Spellbinders, and the blue mat is cut with a simple rectangle, also from Spellbinders.  The "Western Sign" image is hand cut, as is the sentiment, and the sign is mounted on Pop Dots.  The gingham ribbon was in my stash and the bow is hand tied from satin ribbon.  Since this is a masculine card for a boy, I left off any other embellishment, opting for a CAS design instead.
