Outlawz Fridays Alcohol Markers Challenge - "WANTED"

Friday, again, so quickly!?!  Where does the time escape to?  Quick post today as company arrives today.

My card for the Outlawz Fridays Alcohol Markers Challenge truly was a challenge for me.  I'm a "burb" gal.  No country, ranch, or rural life for 50+ years.  The closest I've come to horses or livestock is when the county fair would come to town, and then I headed for the bunny hutches, not the temporary stables.  Anyway, our theme this week is Wild West/Rodeo/Cowboy/Girl.  I fretted over this theme for awhile before putting this card together.  After finishing the card, I love it!  I used the "Wanted" poster from our sponsor this month, Bombshell Stamps, and a past freebie image of a cowgirl from Anne Fenton of Anne's Cards 4 U.  I digitally layered the "Wanted" poster over a Giddy Up Girl digi paper from Carta Bella.  Then I layered in the cowgirl, and added the line "for being too cute", before printing on Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper.  The cowgirl image is colored with Copics.  I added some color pencil and chalks to give her hat a more felt like appearance.  Chalks were also used to give the poster a more weathered feel.  I used a Spica glitter pen to color in the nail heads, and the cowgirl's belt buckle and hat emblem (which says Outlawz!).

Please join me and the rest of the design team over at the Outlawz Fridays Alcohol Markers Challenge.  I'd love to see your take on this week's challenge!

Have a great weekend!  And thank you for stopping by!
