A BIT OF ART FOR STAMPFAIRY



Hello Everyone...

Raining..frizzy hair...2 boys...My Ladies with no memory...but have a card to share and totally different than usual..sort of.

I did some colouring with inks...created a scene,and with practice I may get good at it as I had fun doing it..

Meet Chubby Cowboy 1  from Stampfairy  ....

The town where he comes from was so very pleased that he caught the bank robbers who had stolen all the towns gold, that they made him sheriff..

His badge was a bit big and so was the bag of gold, so he just propped them up by himself, and he looks very happy with himself....


There he is...one of the older releases from Stampfairy  even before my time I think...but he is too cute.



Coloured with Faber Castell pencils and his hat and jacket was paper pieced with Authentique 'Comfort and Familiar'...

The background was supposed to be a sunset...used some little ink pads I had laying around and make up sponges...

Masked off the moon and dragged the sponges in various colours over the top half... and the mountains is a rubber stamp from..'Firecracker Designs' [that's all that is on the set] and wished now I had added more browns..and wished I had masked properly as I made one mountain pink!!!...

The sand or desert was done the same...and then fussy cut Chubby out and popped him on foam tape.

The bag of gold had bubble gum in it and was given to me from my G/son..



There's the side view....background paper Authentique 'Endless and Fair Weather'

Well, that was a long winded post for me..sorry about that...

Thanks for stopping by...will see you Monday...have a fantastic weekend when it comes..I'm on Friday night and exhausted..lol..goodnight [yawn....]

Luv CHRISSYxx

Hi Chrissy and thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I've come for a visit and love your cards. Nice to find a fellow Kiwi in blogland :D

Great design, Chrissy. I love your detailed background, the cactus in the foreground and your paper-pieced bear is just too cute. The sheriff's star embellishment is the perfect addition and so nice that you have a little story to go with it.
Blessing hugs,
Teresa
