Challenge # 67 - 'Your Choice"

"Your Choice"?  What does that mean?  It means you may create any type of entry,  using any type of image, or no  image at all!  The choice is up to you so let's see what you create.  You have two weeks to think about it and to enter.  Don't forget if  you can't find the challenge announcement, you can always go to the top of my sidebar and click on the challenge name as I post numerous times during a week.
I created a card using the Indian Princess set from my sponsor Bombshell Stamps.  She was colored with Copic markers and I embellished the card with an ornate punch border, an arrow brad and a sentiment on vellum. 
For my card I used some of the Indian Warrior digital set kindly supplied by Bombshell. I coloured the images with spectrum noirs. The paper behind the warrior is My Mind's Eye Alphabet Soup Girl 'sweet song' and the striped paper is from a pack by Acid drops & whatnots. The sentiment was generated on my dymo letratag.
I had fun making a tag using several digital images from our sponsor -- the "wanted" frame and some additional images from a cowboy/cowgirl images sheet.  The coloring is done with pro markers and I made the pig-riding cowgirl a brilliant blonde.  I had some great coordinating paper that reminded me of a wooden wall so that's where the wanted poster is mounted.  I hope you have fun with this challenge!
I chose this digital image of a feather, from our great sponsor Bombshell Stamps, enlarged it, copied, then pasted, then flipped the copy horizontally, to give me a front and a back.  I knew I wanted to make a bookmark, so I needed the strength of two layers of card stock.  I used colored pencil and OMS, then cut them out and glued them together.  I added some fibers and beads for a little color. 
What a daring Lady! I wish I could ride like this .... She is one of Bombshell Digital's daring images. I coloured her with Copics to achieve a striking look. The background of the card is a digital image layered on dry-embossed black card. I added some little stars as embellishments.

I received the image from bombshell stamps, I coloured and cut the image out and the umbrella which is popped up. Layered on gold vellum and on yellow. The patterned paper is from a stack I received from Stampin'up and never opened (until now) The sketch is from Sketch Saturday (took liberties) I used a creatables from Marianne designs. Added a few pearls and painted one red to resemble a lady bug.

I am excited today to announce that Bombshell Stamps is my sponsor for this challenge.  Visit their online store and you will find some unusual stamps and digitals that I am sure you can use for almost any project.
