SC301 Cowboy Birthday

I made a card for the SCS301 sketch challenge and this is the result. I love this MFP Southwest Cowboy stamp set, and I added the KSS horseshoe stamp since they seem to work perfectly together. I started with a base of Soft Stone by PTI, and added black and SU! Ballet Blue. I embossed a piece of Soft Stone with the square lattice ef and then smeared some Adirondak Mushroom ink all over it for a rustic look. The image of the cowboy was stamped with Versafine onyx black ink, embossed with clear detail ep and colored with Copics. The horseshoe was stamped with Mushroom, Pumice Stone, and desert sand inks. I added some pewter brads for the final touch.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're all having a happy hump day!

Cool guy card! There's that wonderful lattice, the perfect background for this stunning creation. The horseshoe is wonderful as well as the cowboy and barbed wire. Awesome as always, and SO happy to hear you're feeling better!

Love how you gave your favorite embossing folder a new look with the ink! And you seem to be making friends with your new copics!
