DAY 1 Previews of Rubbernecker's New Releases

Rubbernecker Stamps will be releasing MORE new stamps on Tuesday 4/12/11.  To give you a PEEK of what’s to come, we are having TWO days of PREVIEWS!!  Welcome to DAY ONE!!  You will want to visit the Rubbernecker Blog for ALL of today’s participants!! That and you won’t want to miss out on the PRIZE for today!!  The Rubbernecker Blog has ALL the details for you!!  For my design today, I used Cowboy Ralph (SKU #562-03) and the corresponding sentiment (SKU #564-10).  Cowboy Ralph just cracks me up.  Talk about a man of leisure! 
(if you want to see a larger version of this card, click on the picture)

I used Copic markers to color this image, and I stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso ink.  Both the image and sentiment panels were cut using deckled Nestabilities.  Both are also sponged on the outer edges with Ranger Distress Ink in Brushed Corduroy.  You can't see it in my photo, but I added Crystal Effects to the bath water on the floor.  My sweet, talented hubby (who's a cowboy himself at heart) tied the lasso (using hemp twine) for me.  I first looped it through the piece of brass hardware on the sentiment panel and then glued it to my cardstock with Aleene's Tacky Glue.  I attached brass brads to the four corners and then wound linen thread around each one to get the thread on the outer edge.  The cowboy designer paper is some I found at Hobby Lobby called Rustic Rodeo.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy all of the creations, and GOOD LUCK!!

Charlene,
What a fun card - I might just have to be ordering that stamp - I can think of 2 old friends of mine that live in Wyoming and really are cowboys - and they would have a good laugh! Great card.
