Rhinestone Cowboy... New Monthly Dare and Challenge Winners!

Hello friends! Karla here to bring you a new month and a fabulous new challenge. This year we are focusing on Kim's favourite songs for our theme each month, and because Calgary is all about the big Stampede festivities this month, we want to see see what you create inspired by Cowboys, Western, Bling, Paisley and Country - inspired by the Glen Campbell song linked below - Rhinestone Cowboy!

Rhinestone Cowboy

For this challenge I'm sharing a cool cowboy-inspired card using some fun Emerald Creek goodies and a neat Color Burst Galaxy Background technique that I will be demoing on the next Facebook Live - Thursday July 4th at 10 am MST! If you haven't been following our weekly Lives on Thursdays at 10, you'll definitely want to set a reminder. We have tips, techniques, updates and giveaways.

I'm using some beautiful Boho Blends Lapis Lazuli embossing powder in the center of this cool Seth Apter star die. It reminded me of a sheriff's badge! I then used Charred Gold around the outside and Molten Dimension Black Magic for the outer ring.

I looked through my stash for a cowboy hat stamp and found one from a C Thru The Woods stamp set along with the sentiment below, which I embossed with Glacier White powder. I embossed the hat with Black Cherry powder and watercoloured it in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers before adding Pyrite Gemstones on the hat band with Matte Medium.

This card definitely puts me in the mood to share in the Calgary Stampede activities! 

Here's a Mood Board to give you a few ideas to get you started!!

Thank so much for stopping by! Be sure to head over to the Emerald Creek Facebook Page for a Live Demo on Thursday July 4th at 10 am MST to see just how this card comes together. And don't forget to enter your own project below for a chance to win an awesome prize!!
