Gettin' My Cowgirl On....

Now, I don't own alot of cowgirl/cowboy stamps... In fact I own exactly one.  This lovely Singing Cowgirl stamp from Stamp Francisco.   When I saw her I immediately knew that I had to have her as she reminded me of someone who has become very dear to me... my blogging friend Elise of Mamacow Creations fame.  If you have not yet been to Elise's blog you need to get yourself there right away.  As well as being a fantastically talented crafter, Elise has an amazing story telling ability, ie... her blog posts are hilarious!  So, Elise... this card is for you.

I got out some old My Minds Eye papers that I have, as well as a brand spankin' new T!m Holtz Fades embossing folder called Regal Flourish.  The paper was embossed and distressed with ink and a distressing too, then wrapped with the twine.   I stamped the image with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and then colored my Singing Cowgirl with my Prisma pencils and the blending pencil.  Some distressing was done with Ranger's Brushed Corduroy Distress ink.  The card layout is based on the current CPS layout and I made it for the current JUGs challenge.

Thanks for taking a peek... hope your day is wonderful... YEE HAW!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI's Dark Choc.; PP:  My Mind's Eye (don't recall the collection); Stamp:  Singing Cowgirl - Stamp Francisco; Ink:  Rich Cocoa; Brush Corduroy;  Twine; Cuttlebug; T!m Holtz Fades EF
