She Knows Her Own Strength

I've used the Cowgirl Strength to create this weeks card for Artistic Outpost.

I cut a star from scrap paper and used as a stencil, sponging brushed corduroy and vintage photo ink through the stencil adding stars to cover my background. I then added a little vintage photo ink around the edges and then spritzed with water.
I cut a large star from white card, coloured with brushed corduroy and vintage photo ink and then spritzed with water.  I used the large star as the backdrop for my focal image, the cowgirl, who has been coloured with Distress Markers.
I have added some natural twine across the top of my card along with some wooden stars to echo the stars throughout my creation and a couple of rusty stars for further interest.
I have added the sentiment "She Knows Her Own Strength" to one side of my card and then stamped again, cut up the sentiment and added to the opposite side.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Love that the background looks like a cowhide pattern made from stars! Beautiful rusty rustic design! Another star studded card!
