I love this sweet little Cowgirl image & she’s so fun to color. After I put her in my Misti, I stamped her w/ Memento, colored w/ Copics, then over stamped w/ Versafine. I did the same to the Boots & used the matching Boots die to cut them. I die cut a stitched rectangle w/ a stitched circle cut out opening for the cowgirl, then I used a curved border die to cut the bottom edge. I added a vintage pink layer behind it & did a little out of the box on her hat to place the layers on top of her. The greeting was added below the circle & the boots added on top. The little metal concho was originally a copper color & I added a rosy color to it w/ a Copic marker. It’s one I’ve had in my stash forever so I can’t even remember where I bought it.

Here are the Copics I used.

  4. Oh. My. Stars! Your cowgirl and boots card is absolutely incredible. Colouring, layout, die cuts = a recipe for amazing! I live in a small town just west of Calgary, Alberta, where the Calgary Stampede, in early July, brings the ‘cowboy’ out in all of us. Your card would be snapped up in a nanosecond by those who love rodeos, horses, and all things cowboy…Love it! So thrilled to have the opportunity to guest design with you and the team!

  5. LOVE the gorgeous color in your drinks! This is amazing how yummy and sweet you make them look! Beautiful!
    Take Care!
