Howdy! I might be alittle behind the times, but guess what I have found that I am in love with??? Digi Stamps..that's right, I'm entering the techno world. LOL. I love the feel of the ink, stamps, and the smell of actual rubber stamps. I will never go totally digi, but I am really diggin' the digis. I love how you can change the size to fit your project or combine two together. I am not all that tech savy, but I can figure out some of it. I have found alot of free ones online and I have used quite a few. The one I used on today's project has to be one of my favorites. There is nothing sexier to me that a rugged cowboy. The fit of the jeans, the cowboy boots, a great Stetson...whew...I need a cold shower..lol Being from the south, there are lots of cowboys and rednecks. They are totally different just so you know..:) Living here in PA, I miss seeing the cowboys walk through Wal-Mart. It's something you definitely don't see up here. So, without further ado, my cowboy....
the Outlawz. If you haven't had a chance to go visit them, Colleen has set up a wonderful site. It's full of challenges with some really great prizes. I have won two monthly challenges so far. Talk about shocking. How cool is that, right? So, back to the card...I used a striped distressed blue tone background paper. I colored in my image with colored pencils and OMS. This seems to be my favorite coloring medium. I have alcohol pens, but I need to take a class or something..hehe I matted the image and sentiment, that I printed out, on chocolate brown cs and dark teal cs. I foam dotted the focal image up and added a cowboy hat that I found in my stash from a pad of HOTP paper. I inked the edges in Vintage Photo DI and that finished off the card.
I hope you like this rugged cowboy as much as I do. Thanks for stopping in and have a blessed day.
