Hey Cowboy Video Tutorial and Blog Hop

Hello! Today is the latest Gina K Stamp Release and Release Party. The release party is tonight at 7pm Centrat at StampTV.  Here is one more peek at my newest stamp set, Out West 2.

I made a video to show you how I created the card. If you'd prefer to see it on YouTube, just click here. 

The illustrators have put together a blog hop featuring their new sets. To see their amazing projects and more information about the release, start hopping here:
Beth Silaika
Debbie Corbari
Melanie Muenchinger
Theresa Momber
 

Trim Pure Luxury Sandy Beach cardstock to 3 ¾ by 5 inches and stamp the cowboy/horse image, from Out West 2, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Color in the dark parts of the horse, the saddle bridle and hat using Copic marker E35.

Fill in the remainder of the horse using E31.

Color in the pants with B93 and use B95 for the shaded areas.

Use E97 for the shirt.

Use E00 for the hands and face of the cowboy. Then use W1, W3, and W5 under the horse to help ground the image.

Stamp the barbed wire image around the edges of the cardstock, using Gina K Charcoal Brown ink. You'll need to stamp a second time, lining up with the first, for each side.

Stamp the sentiment, also with Charcoal Brown.


Adhere to a 4 ¼ by 5 ½ inch, Dark Chocolate card base. 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a fun day and hope to see you at the party!

I like the Western theme. I'm from Texas and my Grandpa was a cowboy. Love the coloring you do on these cards. Thanks for making the videos. I'm glad you included some barbed wire! I like that look for a border or who knows what else . . . :)

Being from Texas and having nephews in youth rodeo this will definitely be a stamp set that sees a lot of use. Just wish it had a bull rider too.

Of course, I'm always jealous of your coloring. This is a great card and I love that barbed wire. And "Hey, Cowboy!" is always a perfect sentiment on almost any card here in Texas.
