I really like the new Southwest digi from Hambo Stamps this week, free to all who joined in the Hoedown challenge last week. I combined Southwest digi with another Hambo digi,Camera Guy! This week's Hoedown challenge is to make masculine cards:
I was eager to color Southwest digi because a couple of years ago we went to the Southwest for the first time and it was spectacular! I printed the Southwest digi on kraft paper because I love trying out Copic colors on Kraft and seeing what kind of colors and effects you get once the ink dries. I used Vermilion, Cadmium Orange, Dark Brown, Maize, Walnut brown and even a bit of red on the mountains. I cut out the mountains and attached it to the background which I had colored with Pale Blue, Maize, and touches of orange and Soft Violet. I had just bought a sheet of the Arizona stamps at the Post Office, so I referred to it for ideas on how to color the rocks/mountains in the digi! I used part of Camera Guy digi, coloring him with Copics and silver gel pen. I punched him with a postage stamp punch, which I thought would be fun with the travel theme. The sentiment is also from the Camera Guy set. The DP is Bazzill's Wayfarer 6x6 pad. This was a lot of fun, as the Hambo challenges always are!! Thanks for stopping by!
