For my card I’ve used the image Cowboy from the Body Tot Series available from Digi Doodle Shop.Their a fab range of images and you can even buy the Hillbilly Band images in a full set. I’ve coloured him using Promarkers and inked around the edges with Distress Inks to give an aged effect.I roughed up and inked all the edges on the other layers too to keep the theme going.I found the perfect papers to accompany him in my stash.Unfortunately it was the last sheet and they’re no longer made 😦 The crackle effect one in the background has been embossed for  a different look.I’ve not tried this on patterned paper before and I like it !I also got the opportunity to use my newly acquired Rectangles 2 Nellie’s Multi Frame Dies !! Yay!
