Inky Impressions Challenge - Anything Goes!

Hello - today's Inky Impressions Challenge Day! And this week it is an easy challenge - Anything Goes! How easy is that? And don't forget you don't have to use an Inky Impressions image to join us... well until you have your own Inky Image that is, cuz you are gonna love these images they are just adorable!

Me... I used Deputy Christopher - I have a serious crush on him -
 Handsome little guy isn't he? I colored with my copics - I really love using my Blender to remove some of the ink on the boots and hat... gives them a bit of that worn leather look don't you think? I cut out the image with my Nesties Label 17 dies, and then cut out a piece of the new Tim Holtz Kraft Core-dinations paper, oh oh oh so yummy. I really love this paper! I sanded the edges of it - gorgeous!

Then for my card -

I went for a guy looking card... sometimes you need a just cuz card for Men too right?
 So I went with a dark brown card stock for the card base, a piece of that yummy Kraft Core'dinations paper sanded of course. While looking through my paper for a printed paper, I ran across this vintage papers piece- Love it and how manly and western it feels. So I sewed it down. I really had a hard time getting a second pattern paper - then the light bulb went off in my head and I dug and dug through my vintage finds. Do you love the card I used? It is the back to an advertising card. Has some sort of poem on it, but I love the symbols! I thought for sure Deputy Christopher would play his share of poker don't you think? LOL...

My sentiment is from I think Hero Arts - stamped onto a small price tag that I have tied with twine and inked. Oh the twine... I also wrapped the center of the card with a ribbon and then twine over and over. Then to finish it off I added three vintage buttons with twine through them as well.

 I usually have a super hard time with guy cards, but this one really went together fast, and was fun. Maybe that was because of my crush on my image?

Now pop on over to the Inky Impression Challenge - Great prizes and lots of inspiration!

Have a great Wednesday - Me... lots of little things I need to get done, wonder if I will actually get to them all... I have had a problem getting things done lately, horrible at getting side tracked lately... LOL

HUGS and
