Moonlight Cowboy

Y-E-E-H-A-W..... I love that song by Jake Owen, always makes me laugh!

I've been wanting these sets since they came out and I finally indulged myself. With hubby being from Texas, I figure that I'll get some good use out of them :) They are from Stampin' UP!'s Style Watch BoHo West line. The colors and sets all coordinate so well. I used the Designer Paper from the last catalog, but I also have the new one and plan to use that soon.


He rode into the sunset this evening, now the moon is glowing behind him. I feel like I was watching an old western as I was making this card.

I love our new Jumbo eyelets! They remind me of something that might be used in a barn. And I used the new Chocolate Chip Twill from the current mini. It's not shiny like the grosgrain so it's a better match for the distressed cowboy card. I even dug out my Stipple Brushes for the shading around the cowboy.

Sets: Bronc Buster and Wanted
Papers: Outlaw DP, Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip & Really Rust
Accessories: Dk Brown EP, Jumbo Eyelets, Twine, Twill, Vintage Brads, Scallop & Ticket Punches.
