YEEHAW! Cowboy Kody is riding in to the Some Odd Girl store!

Well howdy, everybody! There’s a new cowpoke in town, and he’s riding in to the Some Odd Girl store today! I’m much obliged to share a card that I made with “Cowboy Kody.”
I mixed and matched some retired patterned papers from my stash, and made a custom sentiment by cutting apart some label stickers. I also added some texture to the woodgrain paper with an embossing folder.
Don’t forget to join our blog hop, which runs until October 31st at midnight Eastern, and we’ll announce the winners chosen from the comments left on each participating blog in the hop on the Some Odd Girl blog on Monday, November 3rd. Look at the “treats” you could win!

YEE-HAW! It’s a western challenge at SCRS!

Well howdy, my crafty friends! I’m moseying in today with two cards for the western-themed challenge at Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps!

I completed Intermediate Copic certification this weekend in Vancouver, BC with my friends Thanh and Naomi, and have been practicing some of the lighting techniques that I learned.

Both cards feature SCRS’s “Cowgirl Chloe“! The first card was colored before I went to the certification class:

and the second was colored after the class:

The main difference in the way that I colored the second image was that I used a lighting placement guide to figure out the highlights and shadows. I also used a different color combination for the skin on the second image (E11 + E21) versus the color combo I used on the first (E00 + E02).
Thanks so much for stopping by!
