Roses on Paper Design Team Sketch Challenge - Sheriff Ian


It's snowing here in Maine again and I want to put this up just in case we lose power. I'll be back to add all the details!

Well, the snow's here, but I don't think it's the losing power type for us. It's so fluffy, but we've had about 7 inches fall since about 3:00 this morning!

I didn't want to miss out on our Roses on Paper Design Team Sketch Challenge, this time presented by our ever so talented Rosette! What a great sketch she gave us with lots of layers! Make sure you stop over at our blog and take a look at the other great cards done up by my other inspiring DT buddies!

I've wanted to color up my Sheriff Ian from The Greeting Farm since he landed here at my doorstep! You can pick this cutie and others up from Summer at Roses on Paper. I colored him with Distressed Inks, cut him out and popped him up. I added some Glossy Accents to his hat band and boots and some stickles for his badge and buckle. I don't do guy cards very often so working with him was as much a challenge for me as the sketch!

While you're at it, don't forget to stop by Summer's blog and sign up for her blog candy. It's pretty sweet!

Hope you enjoy Ian and so I don't get arrested by doing something stupid, I'm planning on staying in the house today, stamping and staying put!
