La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Monday-Center Step Card

Today is another La-La Land Crafts Inspirational Monday showcase for you. If you head on over to the La-La Land Crafts Blog you can see the awesome creations from my fellow DT sisters. :) La-La Land Crafts is posting inspiration every Monday & Friday so you'll get to see tons of ideas using the fabulous Marci & Luka stamps. You can participate too and upload your creations to the Gallery! We would love to see your work!! So get your La-La Land stamps out and join us in our weekly inspiration. :)

The inspiration today is to make a Center Step Card. You can find the directions here. I decided to use one of the brand, spanking new stamps released at CHA called Cowgirl Marci.....YEE HAW! I live in Oklahoma and we've got lots of Cowboys, Cowgirls and Rodeos so this little gal is gonna get inked up quite a bit around these here parts, LOL!

Coloring Medium: Copics & Chalk
Skin: E000, chalk
Lips: R20
Hair: E37, E33, E00
Brown for hat, vest, belt, boots: E55 & chalk
Rope: E55 & chalk
Buckle: C3
Pink for boots: R32 & chalk
Scarf, Dress, band for hat: Paper-Pieced

The cute cowgirl and paisley dps came from the Paper Studio....I LOVE them! I used a CMTH stamp to make the belt buckle. I just colored some cream cardstock with Copic E55 and then sponged on Walnut Stain Distress ink over the top. Then I stamped the buckle image with Versamark and added Zing Rose Embossing Powder. I cut a strip of cream paper for the belt, cut the end into a triangle and added small holes. I colored the strip with E55 and crinkled it up. Then I sponged on Walnut Stain Distress Ink to give it a weathered look.

For the final touch I added white poppies from WOC. And, I raised Tilda and the buckle on pop-dots.

Have a great week and see y'all back here on Monday for some more inspiration! Don't forget to enter my blog candy (post under 07/18).
