Cowboys and Indians


I bought this stamp at Ally Pally last September and inked him up but haven't got round to colouring him until now. I just love him so don;t know why it took me so long. I stamped the sentiment from LOTV's  Summer Bears Companion set. I use this little sentiment a lot. He has been coloured with Copics and teamed with spotty paper from LOTV Nitwits and striped paper from Echo Park A Boy's Life. I looped some string to match the lassoo and added some star buttons from America. I decided I wanted to use leather strips in the buttons which was fine in the 2 largest ones but was 2 big for the smallest one. What a job it was to cut a thin strip in half but when I have an idea in mind nothing else will do.
