Cowgirl Tilda

My seven year-old son had an idea......He decided to give me a recipe and see what I came up with. Isn't he the greatest! :)

He wanted my card to have Tilda sitting on a circle:

Cowboy boots in the bottom right corner:

and to have pink on it, so here's the finished product!

I used Cherry Tilda, a Stampin' Up set called Wanted to emboss the background images, and some clip art cowboy boots I Googled! I brayered over the embossed backgrounds in pink for the wanted panel and green for the paisley panel. Then I cut out the circle using my nestabilities circles. The last thing I did for the panels was to distress the edges and rub dark brown ink over them. Tilda and the cowboy boots were colored with my copics and attached with pop dots for the 3D effect.

My son was extra tickled that I could find some challenges to enter it into, but said it would have looked better with a pink and gray color scheme! Kids! Gotta love 'em! Here's the challenges:

Kaboodle Doodles - Embossing
A Spoonful of Sugar - 3D Something
