MFP Sketch w/a Twist "Wild West" Happy Birthday

Welcome to challenge 15 @ Mark's Finest Paper Speedy TV
MFP Speedy TV
I am guest designer for one of their weekly challenges: they have several so check them out!
Wild West Stamp Set   I stamped the image on Crumb cake with black stazon.  I lightly filled in some color with pencils.  I took some Tim Holtz distress ink and sponged around the edges and the whole thing.  The twist was to add buttons.  I had a chipboard tag -I glued Tim Holtz papers and sanded around the edges and then sponged distress ink. I heat embossed the birthday sentiment with black and added the buttons.  My ribbon is from Really Reasonable ribbon.  It grounds my image to the "road".  This has been a favorite stamp set ever since I got it. I didn't have a lot for men and this works perfect.  Please join us this week-you could win a prize!  Jump on over & see what Karen Letchworth has done for inspiration.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
