Happy Thursday…almost there…to the weekend that is. I am a bit excited to share my card today. Usually when I participate in challenges, it take awhile for me to decide upon a stamp set to use. NOT THIS TIME! When I saw The Paper Players theme challenge this week, I knew exactly which set I was going to reach for….
A “Western” theme would have been a big problem for me. However, I do own ONE western themed set and have never used it until now. I bought this stamp set called Boots, Class and a Lil’ Sass awhile ago when a stamping friend told me about a great sale going on at Unity Stamps. A great sale and a great stamp set….who could pass that up? So pardon me for straying from my Stampin’ Up! roots this time…….
I just fell in love with this boot full of flowers. I have a special niece and grand niece who are cowgirls through and through, so this is who I had in mind when purchasing this set. However, after making this first card, I am thinking that cowgirls or not, a few of my female family members and friends will be seeing this beautiful boot! After all, they all do have more than a little “sass”!
I used copic markers to color this image and added a bit of Wink of Stella (even though it is not evident in the photo) to the boot decoration. It does really shine on the card! I am still relatively new to copic markers so I do stray from the lines a bit, it is especially evident when the photo is enlarged. Just another reason to keep creating and coloring…it’s all in the name of improvement…right?
I did reach for SU’s Birthday Blossoms stamp set for the inside sentiment. The DSP was from my random stash, but I thought is really had country charm.
I know my niece will be delighted with this card, as she really is the only true country girl in our family of city slickers!
Thanks so much for checking in today. I do have a special going on for the month of April. Any order placed on my online store or through email for $50 or more (before tax & shipping) will receive a package of Basic Pearls and a handmade card from me.
Thanks again and until next time,
