Can you tell by the card that the Dude Time Doodles inspirational theme this week is cowboys? CowPoke Cal, the Howdy sentiment, and the Star are all from the CowPoke Cal set by Bonibleaux Designs. Our sponsor for this fun and easy challenge is Paper Temptress and the winner will receive a $20 gift certificate. Who wouldn't want to win that?!?
Stickles was applied to the wheat and the sentiment was heavily covered with Glossy Accents. When it was almost dry, I took it and bend it this way and that to give it a nice crackle finish - like an old sign where the varnish is beginning to crack.
The revolvers are actually a Tim Holtz rubber stamp where I stamped the image, as well as made a reverse image. After both of these were fussy cut out, I applied several layers of sterling silver embossing powder to the images in order to make faux medal embellishments.
Now I hope you are inspired to make your own cowboy themed project. You have one week to upload your creation to the Dude Time Doodles challenge blog. Don't forget, it's got to be for a Dude and you need to follow the theme.
