Howdy - Wohoo! Another challenge at Seems a Little Sketchy!!! The sketch this time was girly, so I decided to change it up and make it Masculine! I used an adorable little cowboy image from Ai Factory, who is our sponsor for this challenge.
Jen make the most fabulous sketches for us to use and true to form I turned it. I don't know if you have noticed, but I always turn the sketch before I start working to see to decide which way I want to do the sketch. It seems that I always forget to turn it back before I post it here on my blog.
I am so behind in my scrap booking and this sketch was a good one to work with. My DP's are Kaleidoscope by MME. I used my Cricut to cut the shape. I used the Gypsy Wandering cartridge.
All of the DP's were inked with Peacock feathers distress inks. It is in the spring color pack.
My sweet little cowboy is Ai Factory's image. It is a good buy, as there are several images in this set. I used only 3, but there were more.
My images were colored with Copics on Neenha Smooth Solor White Classic Crest. I like the way the markers glide across the paper.
Here is the cactus. Isn't it fun?
The circle are a series of punches by CM. I off set them and used star brads to hold them together.
This added interest to what could have been rather dull. (This is my tip for Top Tip Tuesday.)
Here is the star, another image in the Ai Factory set.
The sentiment/title was cut again using my Cricut. This time I used the Old West cartridge. I cut the shadow feature twice; as with the red it got lost, adding the blue helped it stand out a little more.
I just wanted to leave you with the photo on this page. It is me holding my grandson Jace in the NICU. He had to stay there for a week and I spent a lot of time in that chair rocking him. Jace is now almost 3 years old and is a strong, healthy little boy.
