Howdy Pardner

Hello lovely peeps

Sorry I've been so quiet - I've been taking advantage of the good weather to do a bit of jungle clearance gardening.  It's been lovely working outside in the fresh air and sunshine - I made sure to follow patches of shade around the garden though so I didn't get horribly sunburnt.

I've also been sorting out my huge bundle of used Copic pens that I got for a really good price on eBay. I've never hit 'Buy It Now' with such enthusiasm :D

Look at this lovely lot, I'm so excited.

So, on to today's card - I've used Clint the Cowboy by Kraftin' Kimmie, which I coloured with my new (to me) Copics. I stamped him up last week along with lots of other images in preparation for the current 30 Day Colouring Challenge at The Daily Marker.

Here's my efforts from the first 4 days (all done last thing at night snuggled up on the sofa)

It's been cloudy here today so I've been inside crafting and I've had time to colour a bigger image. Here's a close up of Clint.

Copics used:
Hair, boots and holster: E99, E97, E21
Hat and waistcoat: E53, E23, E25
Skin: YR00, YR000
Shirt and tie: N0, N3, N9
Jeans: B97, B93, B91
Jacket: E87, E84, E81
Star: Y32

Other ingredients:
M&C Boutique World Map 6x6 pad from The Works
star stamp from the Jake Skates set by visible Image
family sentiment tags from LOTV
(just the wording coloured with a black aquamarker)
nesting star dies (Crafter's Comapnion)

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Tuesday Throwdown #395 what a guy
Unicorn Challenge #33 masculine
Daisy Chain #20 for the boys/men

Thanks for stopping by,
