MFTeaser - Yee-Haw

Welcome to day five of seven fabulous days of MFT teasers!

I have a fun little western scene using à la modes Cowboy at Heart. I love how he's twirling that lasso.


I started with a card base of Whip Cream then added a layer of Kraft and Hot Fudge. For the ground I tore strips of Natural cardstock then inked the torn edges with tea dye Distress Ink.

I stamped the cowboy with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured him with copic markers. Then I fussy cut around him because I knew I wanted him to be standing in front of the fence. He's mounted on foam tape for a little dimension.

I used the new Barbed Wire Fence Die-namics to cut out the woodgrain posts (patterned paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Wanted collection) the cut the 'wire' from Whip Cream and coloured it with a sparkly Gelly Roll pen. I added a loop of Hemp Cord hanging from one of the posts for when this cowboy lassos his target.

For the sentiment I used the Mix and Match Banners Die-namics to cut out a piece of Natural cardstock then I stamped the sentiment using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink. The patterned buttons were cut out using the new Button Border Die-namics.

On the inside I stamped the cowboy again then added one of the sentiments from this month's triple scoop set, Western Sentiments. Everything was stamped using Kraft Premium Dye Ink.
