Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge - The Great Outdoors

Well I'm back with another card for Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge and this week's theme is The Great Outdoors. Our sponsor this week is The Paper Shelter and we were given the option of 3 images to use. I chose the Adorable Cowgirl as my focal image. So I printed her onto shimmery white paper and colored her using Prismacolor pencils. So I started off using Early Espresso for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I then used Bo Bunny collection called 'Prairie Chic' that fit this challenge perfectly. You can  find this in the store here; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/item_2168/PRAIRIE-CHIC-12x12-COLLECTION-PACK-Prairie-Chic-Collection-from-Bo-Bunny.htm I added 3 layers and then used a Twiddleybitz chipboard called Musical Bars that I changed by cutting it down to fit my card and the extra pieces I glued on for fence posts. I took Ranger's Emboss It dauber to coat my chipboard and then used Lindy's Gang Two-Toned Embossing powders using Midnight Emerald Obsidian and Midnight Bronze Obsidian. I started off using the Bronze EP to cover some of the fence and then sprinkle some of the Emerald EP onto the fence all at the same time and then heat set.  I added 2 coats. I then took some hemp twine and made a lasso which I glue onto the fence. I then cut out 2 sets of  boots using blue and pink glitter paper using Spellbinders die called 'Western Broncos' made exclusively for Heartfelt Creations as well as the cowgirl hat. Then I cut up the pink boots to add dimension to the blue boots. I used the sentiment from sticker collection and then cut out a label using blue paper  and cut it out using Spellbinders die called 'Label 20'.You can find some Spellbinders dies here in the store; http://www.lovesrubberstamps.net/category_358/Spellbinders.htm I added some trees that I cut out from a Cottage Cutz die called 'Rustic Sign & Trees' using green and light green paper from the same collection. I added some transparent glitter called 'Lime' and some opaque glitter called 'Emerald Green' onto the trees to add some bling.
