Loves Rubberstamps - Great Outdoors

Hello Friends!

Well today is my last day of my long weekend!  I has been nice, but I am not quite ready to get back to work tomorrow.  At least we get to have some fun today with what I have to share with you.  It is another challenge with Loves Rubberstamps!  Are you ready?  The challenge is to create an outdoor scene.  So go find your background stamps and create something fun!

Our fabulous sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter.

I had so much fun creating this card and think that it turned out so well.  I figure any cow girl or boy is a bit grungy from hanging on the range, so I choose to distress the papers a lot.  The background papers are part of the Simple Stories Awesome collection.  The image is Adorable Cowgirl, generously provided by The Paper Shelter.  I stamped the background image with the Magnolia Shabby Chic Fence and added some grass.  I also added some Tumbled Glass and Walnut Stain distress ink around all the edges.  To finish the embellishments, I used a button, twine, pearls Wild Orchid Flowers and a paper clip.  I also added some stitching around the edges to help hold some of those torn pieces in place.

Copics used:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E13
Hair:  E02, E08, E18, E19
Dress:  BG000, BG72, BG75, BG78
Jacket/Hat:  E31, E31, E35
Boots:  E31, E35, E37, E39
Fence:  W0, W1, W3, W5
Belt:  E99, YR27, YR24
Grass:  Well... I just start grabbing G's, YG's, E's and N's.  Sorry I did not write them down.

 The inside also uses the  Simple Stories Awesome collection. I left the inside blank, as I am not quiet sure what I will use this card for.

So now that the weather is warming, let's see your outdoor scenes.  Please come over and share with us at Loves Rubberstamps this week.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
