ODBD Mid Month Release – Another Look!

Howdy Cowgirl cu 09264
Today, we’re taking another look at the fabulous Our Daily Bread designs Mid May release! LOVE these cowboy silhouettes! Growing up I used to hear stories of the real cowboys on my dad’s side of the family…we even had 2 or 3 who were Texas Rangers back in the day. For my card today, I’m honoring the cowgirls, as well.

The ivory image panel was first die cut, placed in my Misti,  then I masked the very edges of it & sponged the pink inks from the bottom up, leaving the ivory at the very top. The silhouette was then stamped on top (a couple of times for full coverage) w/ Versafine. I used a Micron pen to give the cowboy a more “feminine” silhouette & add a ponytail. 

The roses on the side are part of the designer paper & I used a craft knife to cut around them & lift them above the panel. I used a gold Wink of Stella pen to add the gold highlights. The ribbon was die cut using the Small Bow and glued into shape w/ an old gold button added on top. The little belt loop strips were made by die cutting a piece of ivory w/ the smallest Double Stitched Rectangle, then moving the end down in 1″ increments.

Here’s a look at the inside. I used the left over frame from the belt loops to frame the greeting & deckle scissors were used around the outside edges.
