CowGirl Up Canvas

Welcome back to my blog!! Today I am sharing another mixed media canvas, seems to be all I make lately, which is ok as i love them. Feels like I'm creating more of an art piece than a "papercrafting" piece. Not that there's anything wrong with either, I'm just really trying to get back to creating every single day and drawing and painting my own stuff rather than others (stamps and digis). I think I'm rambling... hehe OK SO! This is a double project as I made it as my project for the Southern Ridge TRading Co DT but I have been dying to enter into the Lindy's Stamp Gang Colour Challenge for awhile now and I finally did. I had ordered last months challenge kit and was excited to use it here. So first I will show you my project and discuss the details below...

This is a 5"x7" canvas I made with my new Prima Marketing cowgirl stamp, I paper pieced her together and colored her skin with Copics. I had TRIED to make the background look like crackled paint on wood, and it does if you look closely but there's a few extra layers on there than planned! LOL And if I could get the video I made for you all to see the process you would see exactly what I did wrong! LOL Anyhow! Moving along.. for SRTC I have used the large horseshoe, wagon wheel, small horseshoes and the word art COWGIRL, you should be able to find it all HERE.

Now back to the Lindy's Colour Challenge I used the Midnight Copper Embossing Powder on that large horseshoe and it turned out AWESOME!!! Check it out!!

 Ok, so the colours I have used are brighter than the challenge photo, but I'm hoping that is ok, I've never done very well at pastels! LOL But here is the lovely picture!

OK... so my regular followers will know I promised a tutorial. But like I said above, I am having some major technical difficulties! My laptop is grumpy and my body is sore, if I figure it out I will let you all know!! :)
Thanks for listening, looking and reading!
Happy Crafting!!
