I made this card with two challenges in mind, Visible Image July challenge - anything goes using Visible Image stamps of course, and the DCWV July Stackaholic challenge for which there was a sketch.
This is the sketch which I turned upside down. I used the All About Boys DCWV stack for my card, and I thought the cowboy papers went so well with Silverheels from Visible Image, which I bought from That Craft Place in the sale, bargain!
Tonto is coloured with Promarkers, his hair came out ginger in the photo, I was trying to go for darker but with a red tint and clearly failed! I also coloured the fire and hatchet with Promarkers.
How is cut in grey board from packaging to which I stuck copper slug tape, yes slug tape! Normally this stops the slugs from eating the plants in the pots is it around, not this year! Anyway I thought it was so pretty I could use it on cards somehow. I think it would emboss well too.
Old is cut from brown textured card, all letters are die cut with Sizzix Lollypop alphabet dies. I cut some smoke puffs using a speech bubble die from a Papermania set.
The train is punched from red card with a Martha Stewart punch. The card blank is an 8"x8" Card Craft scalloped blank.
