Happy Birthday Pardner!

This weeks challenge over at Paper Pretties was a SKETCH challenge. I was lucky because I JUST received my new Banners Spellbinders Nesties, so I was able to use them for this. YAY!
I inked up Cowboy Cooper and colored him up all purdy-like!  He was colored with Copics. I used several browns - the E50,51,53,55,57 family, as well as the E31, 33, 35 family. I also used the Warm Greys which I rarely use. But the reds on there... yup - - those are E04, 07 and 08. Gives it a nice BRICK Red look.
Once I was done coloring him up I cut him out and then went around the edge of the cutout with a Black Copic Brush tip Multiliner. This kind of makes the edges disapear and if you have a little oops in the cutting, it doesn't show up as much.  YAY.

The Happy Birthday Pardner was stamped using versafine, and then clear embossed. The DP is a double sided Creative Imaginations paper.

I hope you enjoyed this, and I REALLY hope that y'all hop on over to the Paper Pretties site and join in on the challenge. The ladies over there always have WONDERFUL inspiration pieces to help you to get your craft on!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you all back again really soon.
