Sketch - Red, White and Blue

This sweet little cowboy from Stampavie is one of my favorite stamps. I've colored the image using a combination of Promarker pens and watercolor pencils.
I've used jeans patterned paper as background and two more DPs to make the panel behind the image.
I've also used a row of tickets and some jute, onto which I've added white and blue ribbon and red and white twine.
As for embellishments I've used two red glitter brads and a star shaped metal charm.

I've also decorated the inside, by making a frame of the star patterned DP. I've also added the blue spotted paper and tickets, to pick up the theme of the front page.
