CPS #101

I didn’t get around to doing this sketch from CPS. last week,

partly because I simply run out of time and the other reason was I was waiting for some particular rubber stamps to arrive.

You may recall that I was asking for some help a few days back when I was looking for stamps or images relating to line dancing….well as soon a saw the sketch it occurred to me that if I turned it up side down and turned my A5 card into a tend fold opening it could be made to look like a country-n-western style shirt……well that was the theory anyway!

Rhi over on the Daring Cardmakers pointed me in the direction of a great free font and Sue from the Tanda Teaser Team (that’s a mouthful to say Lol!) suggested a cowboy boot and also a text stamp that might work for me.
Thanks for your help girls and to Angela who also made a suggestion!

Anyway, I popped over to Tanda and had a look at the stamps Sue had mentioned and decided not to go with the text stamp but ordered the boot and a cowboy hat instead.
Now I just have to mention here the fab customer service and quick turnaround of orders that Andrew (the owner) always manages.
Not only did my stamps arrive within two days with a little hand written note on the bottom, he had also enclosed two free stamps which fitted in with the theme.
So this is recommend for Tanda Stamps and a big thank you to Andrew.

Here’s the card I made:-

My brief was to make a Blue Line dancing themed card so I went off in search of papers and found just what I was looking for on my Funky Hand ‘Now That’s Funky’ CD, in the Mans World collection.

I stamped and embossed the images directly onto the paper and then part coloured then with glitter gel pen.
The next thing was the computer printed greeting and for that I used the fabby font that Rhi had suggested. It great because the letters look like step directions.
