Howdy pardner!

We want you to Let It All Hang Out at Craft Your Passion this week.No… put it away!What we’d really love to see is anything hanging over the edge of your project.We have the amazing Kenny K,and some of his images literally do let it all hang out (!), as our sponsor and is generously giving away three prizes! For further details on how to play along and for some fabulous inspiration from the DT and GDT’s (Val is having printer issues ATM so you may see something from her later) go hang out at the challenge blog!

Us lucky DT got to work with some Kenny K images and I chose Mae Western to play with.I have to admit I did panic about where I was going to go with this one at first.I don’t think I’ve had to work with anything this racy before!But once an idea formed it was easy from there on in.I thought I’d stick with a Western feel to the card.I printed the image onto some Plain card from the Papermania Kraft Basics Pack (this is a link to show the product),that I found in my local craft warehouse,and coloured her with Gioconda Soft Pastel Pencils.I then assembled the rest of the card using more of the Plain Kraft and some K & Co papers,distressing the edges.I hand cut the pieces of the banner and added some die cut letters.I adhered them to a length of hairy string that I allowed the ends of to hang over the edge of my card.The buttons threaded with twine just add a country feel I think.Mind you I’m not quite sure who I’d give this to as most of my male friends and family aren’t getting any younger and I’d be quite concerned about the effect she might have on them!!
