Sheriff Billy the Cowboy is in Town


Billy the Cowboy by Meljens is a a great image for the "Wild West" theme challenge at Cards for Men. I used a great sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday for the design. I printed Billy on white CS and colored with Copics and pencils and sponged with Distress Inks Wild Honey and Tea Dye. Almost did too much distressing. Used DP's from Nikki Sivils "My Friend Birdie" pack, card base of green texture CS and mat of brown CS. I finished with some Stickopotamus stickers that I have had forrreeever - from a garage sale buy???  Stickers are the badge, boots, stars, cacti, wagon wheel, wanted poster, "Cowboy" and lassos. Used the lasso stickers across the card instead of ribbon or stripe shown on Sketch.
