Back in the Saddle for Polkadoodles

Happy Friday peeps :o)

It's challenge reminder time at Polkadoodles where the theme is 'Use a Die Cut' (you can use a manual or electronic machine)

I've used some of the pre-coloured cowboy elements from Work and Play 3 to make a male 'Get Well Soon' card.

First I arranged the images I wanted in Craft Artist and printed it in in draft to check they were the right size to fit my star dies.

Once I was happy with the layout I printed it off in colour and then positioned my nesting star dies over the top (notice my well-loved cutting mat underneath the card)

After I ran it through my ebosser machine I drew some rope borders around each of the stars - add a line where the embossed edge is and then draw in semi circular parallel lines

I coloured the 'rope' in with a Graph'It marker (9401) before matting the stars onto one of the background papers (which I brightened by 70 points in Irfanview, the software I use for viewing/printing images)

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Hiding in my Craft Room #255 Masculine
