You Spin My Spurs

Good morning. Today's card is a rather loose interprertation of April's Sketch for You to Try. When I converted it to an A2 size rather than a square, I thought it needed an extra background strip rather than just the two. I stamped the MFT Fred Bear Out West onto Copics X-Press It blending cardstock, then masked the bear and stamped the cactus. I colored with Copic markers and then sponged Ranger's Fine Linen Distress ink around the edges to give it an aged appearance. Both papers are olders ones from my stash. My friend Madeline will recognize the Sweetwater paper as they were always a favorite with her when we were on the Lifetime Moments design team together. The metal charms are also from my stash.

Products: My Favorite Things stamp and Die-namics, Sweetwater and Carolee's Adornit dp, Flair Designs and Making Memories charm

Copics: Bear-E40, E41, E42, E44; Hat/Bandana-E08, E09, E19, B95, B97, B99; Boots/Spurs/Badge-C3, C5, E55, E57, E29; Cactus/Grass-YG91, YG93, YG95
