Sometimes a cowgirl has to do what a cowboy can’t

This is sadly my last card as a guest DT for the Outlawz Sketch challenge and it features the fab image, Barn Brat, from this month’s sponsor, The Stamping Chef.

Here’s the awesome sketch for this week.

Notice anything?  Yep, I changed it right up and made a circle card.  That’s what I love about sketches, they are really just a starting point for your creativity and you can change them up how ever you want.  So I decided to get out my Nesties and make a fun circle card, which meant I had to also swap out the rectangle element for an oval.  Wish I had a larger oval but the only set I have larger are ornate and I wanted just a plain one.

The fun wavy elements reminded me so much of rick rack that I just had to use some for them and a spritz of Smooch made my plain white rick rack a lovely cow brown.  With that sheriff’s badge on her hat I had to use some star embellies on this, wish I had enough yellow stars but I only had five so I mixed them up with some blue ones as a neat way to hide the ends of the rick rack.  The current theme at My Sheri Crafts calls for a star on your project so with my six I am also linking up my card there.

Seeing as this is featuring a Stamping Chef image I am also entering their weekly challenge where the theme is always anything goes.  Ive coloured the fun image with, what else, but my Copics.  As they are my favourite colouring medium Im also linking my card at the current Corrosive challenge.

I’ve had a blast being part of the awesome DT at the Outlawz Sketch for this month, thanks ladies for having me as a guest.  I will definitely be back entering the weekly challenges next week and hope you’ll come join the fun too.
