........And Another One!!!

Here's another card made with an image from the same set of stamps that were used for yesterday's cards.
This time I have gone for a cowboy theme.
The REBEL background has been made by masking off the side panel with a piece of torn paper. Did the stamping first and then used chalks to add the colour.
Stamped the image onto smooth white card and coloured with chalks. This was then mounted onto a panel of sanded Core'dinations.
The boot was stamped onto a piece of unsanded Core'dinations and the top one decorated with brads.
Putting the card together I used a strip of self adhesive denim fabric and the offcut was placed at the side of the main image then decorated with brads.
The rope coil is garden string.....I had a devil of a job getting it to stick on and found silicon glue to be the best thing.
The top corner looked a little bare so I made the photo corner from a scrap of card.
Had a lot of fun making these themed cards and I am looking forward to working with the Hollywood ladies set next.

I am so glad it's Thursday. I have three days off now although most of it will be spent doing housey things and cleaning my room which has turned into the local landfill site while I have been busy looking after the shop. Hoping to grab at least some time for myself to stamp or something.

I was going to try and fit in a trip to a garden centre somewhere to pick up some plants for the back garden but with the weather forecast I think I might give that a miss. to have a browse around the net for half an hour and then I think I will probably collapse into bed to make sure I am up at a reasonable time in the morning. The way I feel at the minute I could sleep for a!!!

Bye for now and thanks for stopping by.
