Cowboy Up and a Dragon that likes Ketchup

Today I am sharing cards that I made with one of my Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - The Avenue.  We were challenged to use at least two additional Blue Knight Stamps with this image.  For the first card I used Cowboy Hero, Cowboy Up and Rear View Truck.  I thought these worked perfectly together.  I was pretty pleased with this card.  The sentiment is not showing up well on this card.  It looks much better on the card, in real life, although it did want to blend in with the grass a little.   After I stamped my The Avenue image on white card stock, I colored the grass and the road using Copic.    I brushed Pan Pastels on the sky.  I stamped the truck, colored it and adhered to the card.  I added the cowboys and the sentiment.

I stamped The Avenue stamp on white card stock and used Pan Pastels to color the complete Avenue image and the Fire Breathing Dragon.   I have to say this coloring went really quick.    It is the first time I have used the Pan Pastels to color the whole card.  I usually just do the sky.   I colored my Dragon and fussy cut it and attached it to my card.  I added the Dragon Sentiments last.
