Blog Candy win from The Craft Barn and Cute Card Thursday challenge 42

The challenge over at Cute Card Thursday this week is

'This week we would like to see you use something you got for Christmas on your cards (if you didn't get anything suitable for Christmas then you can use something that you bought yourself over the holidays)!'

I was lucky enough to win blog candy from The Craft Barn the week before Christmas but not had the time to play with the stamp that I won so thought I would use this opportunity to ink it up! The stamp is 'Cowboy Dan' from the Kadoodle range, or available from The Craft Barn.

I paper pieced the image with scraps from stash, colouring a few areas with PMs. I used a cream base card from stash and used a dauber to add some colour from a chalk ink pad, I quite like the effect, thought it looked a bit like hide. After taking the first 2 photos had a flash of inspiration, I remember having some yarn left over from knitting the fluffy scarves a while back and thought it would be good to add detail and look like a piece of rope - not so sure now, what do you think?

SU punches were back in use again, the tab punch at the top, may add some detail there as it looks a bit plain, circle and scalloped circle for sentiment which is from Scrappy Cat.
