Cowboy on Red cu 09301
Today’s Technique Challenge (TLC587) on Splitcoast is a Collar Fold. I admit, I’ve seen a few of these & really liked the look, so this is my attempt.
Cowboy on Red 09300
I had an idea to use the fold w/ this wonderful cowboy image & have the collar fold peel back to reveal a little more of the scene. The paper I used is double sided, a bright red distressed on one side, a paler peach on the other. The image was stamped (a couple of times, using the Misti) w/ Versafine then die cut. I did the collar fold on the left & peeled the edges back & added brads. I stamped part of the silhouette scene again on the larger red layer & attached the top layer on top along w/ a very narrow black frame. The moon/eagle image was stamped on white, fussy cut & added along w/ the greeting.

Here’s a look at the inside.

It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast (FS485) so a big Congrats is in order to Sarah, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a wonderful, growing gallery & I chose THIS to case. I kept the umbrella & plaid bg, but I used different paper, different images & added a couple more layers.

After die cutting the layers, tags & Wishing word out of the different papers, I stamped the rest of the greeting on some aqua & die cut it. I added a dk orange umbrella a little down to show under the edge of the coral umbrella, A smiley face was stamped on the coral umbrella & I went over it w/ a black glaze pen. Like Sarah, I added some sequins to finish.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Does this image make you thirsty, lol? It’s been a 5 O’Clock kind of week around here. And I just love images w/ colorful, tasty beverages in them. After coloring them I die cut them & added some equally colorful layers of papers behind them. I thought the Relax die would fit in perfectly w/ the image.

I added some stickles here & there for a little sparkle. 

I’ve shown this on other posts, but I’m always amazed at how much sharper the image looks after over stamping w/ Versafine. Below.. left is just w/ Memento & Copics..right is after stamping again w/ Versafine (click any picture to enlarge).
