Big Gun

 Big Gun - It is time for another challenge at Craft Your Days Away. This fortnight we are sponsored by Sassy Designs. Sassy Designs gave us a few images to play with and you know that an Oklahoma girl like me would choose this cowgirl. Head over to Sassy Designs and get your cowgirl on!

Our challenge is to use metal. I actually used two metal pieces in my project. Can you find them both?
 The first piece of metal is this cowboy boot charm. I put it on a jumpring and tied it into my gingham bow.

The second piece of metal is a brad in the gun grip. My gun was cut with my Cricut, using the Old West cartridge. I cut the gun image in two different grays, using my Gypsy to hide contour on most of the lines on the image to make my cylinder. I then shaped the cylinder. The gun grip section was embossed with my CB. The brad was then used as the screw to hold the "wood" grip in place. I like the gemstone swirl. I think it looks like smoke from the barrel of the gun.
 The image is colored with Copic's and Stickles was added to the boots and hatband. My DP is K & Company's Julianne. The flowers are Heartfelt Creations stamps and cut with the cordinatored SB.
