Giddy Up Cowgirl


What a great theme this week on Theme Thursday. Go check out all of the creative entries. I started with an image from the New York Public Library online. It is a great site for vintage photos and advertisements. The background consists of distressed ink and a new stamp from Michaels. I added a small tag with a copper star. I used stickers for the lettering. Lastly I added a little ribbon and scratched up the cowgirl image with sandpaper. Creating this challenge was a nice get away from the winter weather happening outside. My area in Northern Indiana is expected to get 4 or more inches of snow tonight and tomorrow. Time to break out the snow boots or maybe the Christmas decoration.

I would never have thought of accessing the New York Public Library online...and me a librarian...should be ashamed! Thanks for the hot tip...and the gorgeous cowgirl piece. This one has lots of sass and is beautifully composed.
