Cowgirl Tilda at Just Magnolia and WINNER!!



Happy Saturday to Everyone!! Gosh, I hope you are as ready as I am to have a wonderful weekend! I am ready to get lots done and stay awake more than a few minutes at a time....lol...Of course as hot as it has been in Southeastern US, staying inside in the A/C has been a real blessing, although I would like to have more AWAKE moments!! My weekends, free of anything radiated, are a real JOY!!!!

This week at Just Magnolia we were treated with a wonderfully fun sketch by the delightfully talented and creative Dawny P. We would love for you to come over and check out the splendid DT Sample Cards this week and join in with us in using Dawny's sketch and your Magnolias! There is a very nice prize this week from Crafty Sentiments so come on over and show us your interpretation of the sketch!!

For my card I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI Kraft and Ocean Tides, and the DP is from the WANTED paper pack by Cosmo Cricket. All panels were machine stitched. Since I was using that darling Cowgirl Tilda from Magnolia-licious, I wanted to distress the card so that it would look as though this little darlin' had been riding fence for days!! Tilda was stamped on Cryogen white and colored with Copics. In order to make her outfit and boots look like suede or nubuck I used a Q-tip moistened with blending solution to touch the areas....how did I do?? She is now available at Diana's shop!! I am NOT a distresser so this card really took its toll on me...lol. To finish the front of the card I added a computer generated sentiment which I printed on Kraft using Abilene font and tied it to the card with jute twine, adding a lucky horse shoe with horse charm to the bow. I finally added silver brads to soften the worn out corners which remind me of saddle ornaments.

And what is a COWGIRL without her horse????



On the first panel of the inside I used Tilda's Horse which is available at Diana's and Old Stand to set the ranch scene. They were both colored with Copics. I added some free-form grass and used jute twine to tie Horsey to the stand. Although the stand is not available right now, Diana does have a number of fences which you could use just as well. I also added another lucky horse shoe charm to the bow. The second panel is just a jotting spot with jute bow. I hope you like my attempt at the Old West!!!

cheribella said...

Just love it!!! Your Q-tip worked great....I'll have to give it a try some time. I know you can also use a small piece of terry cloth with the blending solution but I think you have better control your way. Can't believe you've never distressed before...me either though lol!
Hugz,
Cheri

Charlie said...

What a perfect cowgirl - and the jute is JUST perfect - one of your otherwise lovely satin bows wouldn't do here. The boots are super and so is the horse - I have used this horse a couple of times and know it is not easy to color in the right way. Enjoy your weekend - another week done is one less to endure with this treatment.

Maryann said...

What a cutie little cowgirl, you´ve made here and I just love the horse to go with her too. As always your creations is awesome hun. I always so love to see, what you´ve done here.
Have a wonderful week ahead of you .

Auntie Em said...

Monday morning again!!! I have been thinking of you and hope all goes well this week.
Your little cowgirl Tilda is so cute and I love her pony as well. The silver charms tied on with the twine are adorable AND you aced it with the distressing! It's a little difficult to do the first couple times but your's looks amazing. I sometimes spritz a little water on the paper to help soften the edges.
Thanks for sharing! :o)
