The rootinest,tootinest card in the wild,wild west

Hee,hee.Sorry couldn’t resist taking some of the words from ‘Woody’s Roundup’ and messing with them a little.Love all the Toy Story films.I’m such a baby ;D

The theme this week at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best is Don’t Forget Our Men so we’d love to see your manly cards/projects.Please click on the link to check details on how to play and be in for the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend in the Digi Doodle Shop!!There will also be two runners up chosen.All three will be in for the chance to join us as Guest Designers in the following month.While your there take time to have a look at the truly amazing work by the rest of the DT!

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!
