Alteredpages - Bombshell Babes Two for Tuesday Blog-hop

Ms. Buckaroo Skully

Featuring products from and 

Here is how Ms. Buckaroo Skully came to life.

Starting with a 5x7 canvas art board I created the background by stamping a checkerboard pattern using my Maya Road Earth Brown Chalk InkWhile still wet I blended the ink from the center out in all directions. Using my Big Brush PITT Pen in black I outlined the entire panel...for a little pop ya know?

I painted out my image and the cowgirl image using my Neutral Color Pack of Gelatos & gave it all a bit of detail & color. 
I then fussy cut all of my images, attached them together using my UHU glue stick where needed and set them aside.  I was lucky to find some scrap book paper from my, well, scraps, and it worked perfectly.  This is the bucking bronco image you see behind Ms. Skully. I added some color here as well, using my trusty Gelatos.  

To finish off the canvas panel.  I added a band at the top and bottom with Newspaper Journal Washi Tape and jute. I attached the jute with Crystal Lacquer. I added some cute Brown Resin Blossoms...a couple here...a few there. She is a cowGIRL after all.

I then adhered my collage and digital images adding Ms. Skully  last. I gave her a lasso made of twine. She never knows when she might need to hogtie something.  

For the finishing touch I added burlap to the back of the panel allowing a 1 inch border all around. And, this is Ms. Buckaroo Skully.
