Howdy Cowboy!

Howdy partner's.  Hope you have had a great week.   I still have that other box card to finish., will hopefully get it finished on the weekend.  Well, at least put it together, as all the pieces are ready to go.

It's the start of a new challenge at Polkadoodles this week and our theme is Men on our Minds; so anything for a male.  Could be for Father's Day, a birthday, anything male related.

I decided to use one of the new collections, the Work and Play 3 CD collection.  Such fabulous images, papers and sentiments.

I used the pre-coloured saloon to make a shaped card.  I have layered up the saloon image and then cut out the swing doors.  Have then added another ticket sentiment behind the doors.  By doing this I feel it has added some depth to the card.

I inked all the edges of all the layers with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink.  The cowboy is coloured with Copic markers and are listed below.

Copic Markers

Hat/Scarf - E11, E15, B21, B24
Hair - E29
Skin - E000, E00, E11
Shirt - YR00, YR12
Jacket/Trousers - E25, E27
Jeans - B34, B37
Boots - YR12, YR18
Guitar - E11, E15

I have used brown card stock for the base of my card.  And used my Silhouette Cameo to design and cut the shaped card.

For the inside, I added a white piece for writing a note.  The corners have been trimmed with a corner rounder and then distress ink added.  Also the little horse stamp was perfect, and comes from a CTMH stamp set called  Adventure Canada.

And there you have it, a wonderful little western card.  I love the cute cowboy.

I have used this collection for my project today.
