Krafty Riding Sun

I have a triple challenge card to share!!! As I have mentioned before, I love to combine challenges when I can!! I combined today's sketch challenge, yesterday's color challenge (to use Kraft, Real Red, Summer Sun and optional black) and High Hopes challenge, NO dp, ack!!! That is so hard, I LOVE my dp!!! All three challenges had me stumped. I sat down last night to make a card with the color challenge and nothing was working this morning when I was going through my stamped images and the light bulb went on, lol!!! This adorable image is Clarabelle and Riley from High Hopes. I colored the image with my Copic markers. I decided the cow should be black and white, so I just colored the spots with 100 and the udders with R20. Clarabelle's skin was colored with E51 and I dotted R20 on her cheeks. Her jeans, cuff on her shirt and bandanna was colored with B24, her shirt R46 and Y17. I didn't do any shading with those colors, I was worried about going outside of the lines too much!! I did blending with her boots and hat using E35 and E37 and her hair with Y21. I hightlighted the image with C1. I cut the image out using my small labels Nestabilities and the black using my large labels Nestabilites. The base card is Kraft, I then cut down pieces of Real Red, Summer Sun and Kraft, ran them through my Cuttlebug using my Just My Type embossing folders, attached to a piece of True Black cardstock and and tied Kraft Taffeta ribbon in a knot. The main image is up on dimentionals, I thought with the dots and ribbon it would look better that way.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
