Little Cowgirl - Messy has been playing

I don't usually "do" western theme but this little Ride Em Cowgirl from Whimsy Stamps was just begging to be coloured up!

The colouring is a combination of Copic Markers and Prismacolor pencils with mineral spirit. The papers are from old and forgotten K&Co pad - aren't they lovely. It's therapeutic to go through your old stash once in a while, lol.

I also used a sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs - it's from Gift Horse set but all of the sentiments in that set would fit the lil' cowgirl perfectly!

All the metal embellies were originally silver, I coloured them up with Copics (combination of YR23 and E37) to get more aged bronze look. I made the flower myself and the flower center is a combination of 4 metal pendants (the loops clipped off) and some acrylic gems.

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

Digital Tuesday - DIGI STAMP and it's all about the girls

I love this card Annika - everything about it is to perfection!! The colors are fabulous and I love your homemade flower - maybe a tutorial one day?? The metal embellies are just right for this card!! I have a few prisma pencils and mineral spirit - haven't played with them much but may have to pull them out again - your coloring is very inspiring and I love to play around with coloring techniques!!!
