My Favorite Cowgirl

I made a card. I know... *jaw drop*

The May Sketch by Kathi over at Bombshell Stamps was so cute I had to take a crack at it.

The main stamp is called Retro Cowgirls and it's my very favorite stamp set. I always tell people that if they have to choose just one, choose this one - you get two pin-up girls!

I also made the baker's twine on this card using the technique shown in this video:

The only snag I ran into was getting the ink to seep all the way through the baker's twine to the back. My black batch was very one-sided. The juiciness of the marker seems to be a deciding factor in the success of the batch.

 Cowboys and Cowgirls

CUTE! That is an adorable stamp! I used that video too...but with limited success. I had the wrong width of marker. I'm trying it again tho!

Sweet! That turned out so cute. I like pin-up girls.
