Wolf Country

Good morning everyone!

Today I wanted to share a birthday card that I made for my Dad! 
It features a gorgeous wolf image from Eureka Stamps and a Vintage Cowboy map from Create with TLC. I colored the image lightly with Copcis and used Walnut Stain ink for the distressing. The wooden chevron arrows were painted with gold metallic paint, crackle paint and then I added distress ink to them also. I found a charm in my stash that had a flower in the center so I removed it and altered the charm...  
I punched the word wolf out of an old dictionary, distressed it and then added Dimensional Magic for a 3D effect... it looks so cool IRL!
Well, there you have it... a very masculine card. It was so fun to make and my dad really loved it!!

I hope you have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!

AWESOME card Tammy!! Wow your dad must have been impressed with this beauty! I love the way you distressed the map and edges. The light coloring on the wolf image looks wonderful. Very clever using the dictionary definition and tying it on with the string!! I Really like this one! Have a super weekend my friend :)
