It's time for a little two-step down at For Fun Challenges. We are challenging ya'll to make western themed cards this week. I didn't have anything that quite fit the bill so I decided to make a cowboy hat instead. Originally I was thinking of a cactus but I like writing space in my cards and this would fit into a 5X7 envelope. While, I really like the end result, I think I hit more on Indiana Jones than Tim McGraw. Maybe a black hat would have been better? The little dino was so cute though that I couldn't bear changing the theme.
The edges of the hat was distressed in TH Walnut Stain to give it a bit more dimension. The ribbon are scraps rescued from another project. The brim was folded up to make a Z- fold for dimension. The Peredactyl is a discontinued stamp by Dustin Pike with Paper Makeup stamps and was coloured with copies.
I do hope you'll join us!
