Hello, Friends and Happy Monday. I hope you had a great weekend. Our weather this week was so extreme!!! I mean really, really, really extreme. We had 70 degree temps with high winds and 7 inches of snow within 24 hours. So, the saying goes here in Colorado…I’ve said this before…If you don’t like the weather, wait a few hours. And of course with the temps and spring like conditions comes the spring heat. OMG, my ducks are courting already and the birds are inspecting all of the bird houses around the ranch. OK, so enough of that…
Our new challenge is up at Craft Your Passion and this week our theme is “Paper Piecing.” This is such a fun technique, if you’ve never tried it, you gotta cuz it is so fun. OK, I'll say it again, it's so FUN! Our sponsor this week is AiFactory and I am using “Cowboy” for my card. Very typical for me since I’m a ranch livin’ and lovin’ cowgirl myself. And you gotta check out my DT girlfriends' projects too cuz they are awesome.
I used some digital papers for my Cowboy’s hat, vest, boots, plaid shirt and bandana for the paper piecing. I used Copics to color the remainder of my image’s skin, hair and Cowboy’s chaps and belt.
I also wanted to enhance the scene so I used my Mini Magnolia Butterfly Scene stamp as the background. The wheat paper was heat embossed with Seafoam embossing powder from Ranger on Bazzill cardstock using a Hero Arts stamp.
I added some dimensional elements of punched stars and jute twine for the card and finished it off with some gold stickles for the stars on my image’s chaps and hat as well as Copic Silver Spica for his belt buckle.
I used so many Copics for this image especially the background that I didn’t take a photo of the colors. Sorry, but the rubber band broke and that was all she wrote. Time to skip that part…LOL. I hope you will join in the fun for this Challenge cuz you are gonna love it.
I’m entering this card in the following challenges.
