Country Girl At Heart

Morning from a very sunny and cold South Coast. Wish the weather would start to warm up as it's freezing down here and woke up this morning to -1.5 yet again although it's lovely and sunny!
Just popped on here with a cowgirl tag made with a lovely free digi stamp from the lovely June at Dezinaworld. Each Wednesday now, she kindly posts a new free image for her followers and if you make something and let her know, it's entered in her Spot Prize Challenge for a chance to win one of her fabulous collage sheets. Do go and have a look as the collage sheets and also her new mega background pack are just beautiful. There's quite a few examples on my blog made with these so if you're interested there's a label on my side bar.
Here's what I made:
I printed out the image on to white card and coloured her with pencils-a mix of Prisma and Luminance 6901 by Caran D'Ache. I then did my favourite trick of sponging lightly with a mix of VersaColor pigment inks and Distress inks to soften the pencil colouring and draw everything together.
I made my own tag with a rounded top out of thick white card and then embossed just the top using the Cuttlebug Kimmy Luvs folder. I inked the embossed hearts with denim blue and then sponged sand beige in between. I made a patchwork look using rectangles of decorated paper from the brand new and gorgeous V & A Collection available from Docrafts stockists. This beautiful paper is based on the V & A quilt collection and has a linen finish. I drew faux stitching on with a brown fine liner.
To finish the tag off, I printed off the text and drew round it with more faux stitching then cut it out. I added punched hearts as an embellishment.
