Howdy everyone! I made this card today for the latest OCC challenge, which was (my fav!) a sketch challenge, created by the talented Laurie Schmidlin. I used the "Howdy" image from a level 2 hostess set called "A Little Something" and then pulled out some paper and stamps that went with the cowgirl theme. I used the stamp set "Wanted" and the paper "Outlaw" to compliment this cute image from "A Little Something". I wanted the look to be super distress-y, so I inked the edges of all layers. On the circle panels, I stamped the wanted in Chocolate Chip craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. For the other two circles, I stamped the images on white glossy cardstock with versamark, and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then added ink to the circles with a dauber and wiped off the excess to leave the embossed image showing (I think it's called emboss resist). I sewed around the bottom layer and the square in the center with my Janome. Ribbon is from a local store called "G and G" which sells huge rolls of ribbon super cheap.
Thanks for stopping by today!
