FS35 Cowboy Kid Case

Its been awhile since Ive been able to do a featured stamper challenge. Today the featured stamper is Anna (sweetmissdaisy) and she has an amazing gallery! I had alot of fun playing with my cowboy kid the other day and when I saw Anna's card I knew I wanted to case it. I loved her layout! I changed the dp, colors, brads, and sentiment.

I used my HL chocolate textured cs for my card base 4 3/4" sq. My main image is colored w/markers and an aquapainter. I saw yesterday where reneejul1 posted a card that she colored this same way and had to try it! I love the results! I used my choc chip, creamy caramel, ballet blue, night of navy, and rose red markers to color the image. I stamped the wanted sentiment in choc chip after stampin off but after I posted the card I noticed you really couldnt see it so I went back and stamped it w/out stamping off and it looks better. I distressed and sponged the image and torn the right top corner off. I layered my main image on night of navy. To make the tabs I used the HL choc paper and placed 2 silver brads I adhered the tabs to the back of the night of navy layer. My Daisy D paper was perfect for this card so I distressed and sponged and matted it on ballet blue. All mats are 1/4".

Julie is going to post a tutorial on coloring w/the markers and I'll place a link to her blog when she does. It's definetly something to try if you have the markers! Have a great weekend.
