Cowgirl Wisdom by Deborah

Sometimes a card comes together after I've rooted through odd bits of this and that I have kept 'just in case' - painted paper, images I've stamped on odd scraps...
Today I found a bit of paper I had experimented on by brayering paint onto an embossing folder and then printing with it. The cowgirl came from a card that went wrong. I thought she looked good against the distressed stripes and that was this card was born.
I stamped the chalkboard sentiment where the stripes where there was a gap in the 'stamped' stripes and added the Tim Holtz star beneath to fill in space. It also happens to echo her belt buckle.
After edging the background with Slate, I glued it to a card blank then added the bunting. It was stamped on a separate piece of paper, cut out and and coloured with the same ProMarkers I used to colour parts of the cowgirl. 
I edged the card in Tea Green and Slate but the white surround didn't look quite right so I filled in with Buttercup.

  3. You could not have picked a more perfect background for your Cowgirl.
    Great fun that both you and I have been playing with the same set.

  4. It came together beautifully Deborah.
