Canyon Road

Hi everyone a card today for ABC where this week there's a colour challenge of blue and brown. There's a teeny bit of green and gold but it's predominantly blue/browns so hope it's acceptable. My image is one of my digi images 'Canyon Road' which is now available and is marker coloured then edged with distress ink. The little cowboy is by Alota Rubber Stamps also marker coloured then cut out. I've made a card blank from acetate and mounted the background image on the inside and the cut out cowboy on the front. Two holes have been punched at the folded edge which are threaded with some parcel tape. To finish I added the sentiment on the front stamped with black stayzon ink and I cut a piece of paper the same size as the background image and attached on back of the card and over the image panel so that reverse of the image doesn't show. I've realised now that I've uploaded the card that I forgot to cut out the centre loop of the rope, doh! Hope you're all having a good week. TFL. Chris
