Howdy Cowgirl!

Greetings! It's another challenge for Word Wednesday over at 365 Cards.  Our Word this week is "Flag."  I immediately thought of this plate of stamps from Artistic Outpost, which includes flags.  The focal image was stamped twice, once with Red StazOn Ink and once with Black StazOn Ink.  The cowgirl was trimmed, water colored with Distress Ink and added to the the other image.  The edges were distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then matted with black paper and assembled over another panel of white card that was stamped repeatedly with a cow print, distressed and matted and added to the card base.  The word "Cowgirl" was created with chipboard letters by Alterations and were painted with Faded Jeans Crackle Paint. Embellishments by Alterations (tickets, paper string and a game piece) complete my card. I am also entering my card at the November Artistic Outpost Referral Program. Thanks for stopping by. Yvonne

Love the stamped cowprint, such a great choice of background for this cowgirl. The banner and all those different words and sentiments are such great details that it's the theme of your card so nicely!
