Serape on the Side

>> Friday, May 4, 2018

 Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Since tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, I have a southwest theme card & I made a serape to go down the side. This started out w/ the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge & when I saw the picture below, it looked like a Cinco de Mayo fiesta to me so that was the inspiration for my card.
To make the serape on the side, I used two plaid images, which until you stamp them across each other, are just stripes. I inked the stripes using Tombow markers in red, yellow & green then colored a wide strip & used fringe scissors on it to make the lower border. The image was stamped, colored & die cut w/ a little out of the box to keep the boot tip & rope from being cut off. I used Prismacolor pencils to add the sunset colors behind the image. For the greeting, I stamped it once in the Morocco ink, moved it a tad & stamped it again in brown ink to get the slight shadow.
Here's a look at the inside & below it are the markers I used.
 Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend & Happy Cinco de Mayo!

So fun Julie!! Your serape definitely jumped out at me first, but then led me straight to the sunset behind the Cowboy Garb - beautiful! Love the 2 color greeting too! One thing .... how have I lived all these years and not know there was such a thing as fringe scissors????
