Red and Blue Card Challenge

The card challenge over at Cards in Envy is Read and Blue. I had some paper in mind I wanted to use from an old Authentique collection for this challenge.

You've seen this stamp set before as I used it on a tag recently. I decided to use it again because I like her and the paper has a western feel to me. This is from the  Angiegirl  collection from Unity Stamp Co. called "Harper Girl".

I chose to paper piece her which proved to be more difficult than I had anticipated but I like the results.  I did color her skin and the gun with my Copic Markers. The sentiment I stamped using Distress Ink Faded Jeans then stamped over with Versa Mark and heat embossed with clear powder. I then used foam tape on Harper Girl and the sentiment and finished it off with some twine.

Thanks for taking a look!

Have a good one!
