A Beach and a Cowboy

>> Wednesday, August 9, 2017

I have some fun cards to share with you today with two of my favorite themes:  the beach and cowboys.

I colored up the Silhouette Palm Tree Line image with some markers and spritzed on some water so they would look like they were water colored. Then I sponged on the pink sky and added the Life is Measured Greeting.  I sponged on some distress oxide ink for the water and it was done.  It was actually a pretty quick card.

This card took a bit longer to make.  I swiped some inks on some aluminum foil and spritzed with water.  Then I put my paper into the ink until it all soaked up.  After drying, I stamped the Picket Fence image and colored it with colored pencils.

 Then I stamped the Saddle Up Cowboy image and fussy cut him out after coloring him with colored pencils.  I stamped the Better in Cowboy Boots greeting and turned it into a tag.  I finished the tag off with a rusty star and some old frayed carpet fibers (I loved the look and saved them).

Hope your week is going well.
