Cowgirl Strength

Cowgirl Strength one of the new releases from Artistic Outpost is all about girl power and knowing our own strength. Ten unique images complete this collection including bandana trim and stitching as well as three fierce and gorgeous cowgirls.
My background has been created cutting a star from scap paper and sponging broken china ink through the star, moving around the card to give my background. I then kept the paper stencil in place to add the print to each star.
As soon as I saw this cowgirl I thought of denim and wanted to use a little somewhere on my card and so decided to cut a star from an old pair of denim jeans which also inspired my colour choice for her top, colouring with broken china ink.  Vintage photo seemed the perfect complimentary colour to add to my card, blended around the edges and colouring a star in the same colour.  I also spritzed with a little water to give a little more interest to my background and my stars. I added a little gold star to her scarf to echo the stars throughout my card and three wooden stars to the top and bottom corners along with some natural twine and a rusty star.   I love the fabulous sentiment which I added to one of my stars, stamped with black archival ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

This is totally sensational, Tracy! I really love the way you stamped the cow spot pattern inside the stars and the way you used the bandana print around the edges. Well, actually I totally love EVERYTHING about. This is a great plate and I'm so sorry I missed out participating in this month's release. You definitely rocked this release!
