This is the cowboy from the very old Stampin' Up set called Wild, Wild West. Isn't he a honey, LOL! I colored him with copics then sponged some Antique Linen Distress ink over the crisp white Xpress-it cardstock to tone it down a bit. For all that the cowboy is pretty cute, I think my favorite part of this card is the background!
I signed up to Creative Chemistry 101 and 102 at Online Card Classes and have been enjoying learning new techniques. For this background, I sponged various distress inks onto a piece of Whisper White, then flicked water onto the panel. Once I'd dried that, I inked up the text stamp from Papillon with Picket Fence Distress Stain then stamped over the panel. Here's a look at the card before I adhered Mr Cowboy. It could be a card all by itself!
The little tag is from Simon Says Stamp and has been sponged then stamped with a couple of little stars from the same Mama Elephant as the embossed sentiment.
