Country and Cute

Wednesday, June 30, 2010
I'm going a little country today. Todays image is from "Raisinboat" stamps. The set is called "Gals on Mountain View Drive". It's a very cute set and also has a gal on a motorcycle.
For todays card I used the cowgirl image. Here it is;

"Country and Cute"

The background was airbrushed with my Copic markers, to give the appearance of land and sky. After this was done I cut around the edge with a pair of deckle scissors. The mat paper was from a set from " The Angel Company" called "Winchester". The main mat for the card was a sticker paper in a wood grain.

The glitter dots used on the corners are from "Jesse James Beads". Check this site out, they have some very useful embellishments to use on cards. A little hemp bow finished the card. The horses were stamped in a "Briliance" "Coffe Bean" ink. The last thing I did was to cute out the main image, the cowgirl, an popped it up. The line of horses were form "Stampabilities".

Of course I colored the image with Copic markers. The colors used were;

Face; E000,E00,E01
Blouse; Y02,Y06,Y08
Hat &Boots; E11,E13
Hair; Y23,YR23,E35

Very country and fun to make.
Hope you enjoy my effort. Your comments are welcome and appreciated.
Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    Yee Haw Bob, well done! ;)

    Love the use of the woodgrain backing, and your Copic airbrushing is great! I really, really want an airbrush now!

    Bob, that is a darling card. Even people not hooked on "cute" will enjoy this. I had not seen the Raisinboat stamps before, and will have to check them out.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Perfect timming Bob! How'd you know that the World's Oldest Rodeo is taking place NOW up here in Prescott, AZ? Cowboys and Cowgirls from all over are running rapid in the town, the city, and out in the wild west! LOL

    Cute image, great card, well done as always. Like Pat Smith, I"ve never heard of Raisinboat stamps and will check into them.

    Thanks for sharing! :)

    Hi Bob, what a really cute cowgirl, she makes you want to right out and ride a horse. Sorry I havent been around in a while. But, the computer died and now I am back. Your work just gets better and better. Wish I was close enough to you to take lessons.
