Whitewashed Fence & Cowgirl
Howdy, y'all! Howdya like this cute little cowgirl??? This is my project for the challenge this week over at I Brake For Challenges. This is an inspiration challenge, and there is the cutest inspiration picture over on the challenge blog. I was inspired by the red and white polka dot dress, and I added the white polka dots on the red boot, the red bandanna, and the red bow in the little cowgirl's hair.
The fence and the background were transformed by using the Simple Whitewash technique from Technique Junkies. This technique just exactly what I needed to go with this sweet little cowgirl. The cowgirl - Chelsea with Pony - is from the Sarah's Girls sheet over at I Brake for Stamps. I added some die cut clouds and some little strips of red cardstock for a little pop of color.
