Claudia & Company October Challenge

Welcome to Claudia and Company Challenge #5 and this month we have
a little Recipe: The Color ORANGE, BUTTONS and RIBBON...
 I opted for the adorable Cowboy McCoy and I wanted to try a watercolour effect using my copics,
not sure if it works, but certainly fun trying :)
I have stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured in copics. The edges have been distressed and I've tinted with a little distress ink too! Now, for the zigzag I have peirced the paper using the WRMK sew easy embosser thingy although it came out quite thin on this thick paper I still managed to hand stitch with some orange thread.

 Supplies: Patterned Paper: WRMK textured cardstock; watercolor paper;
Stamps: C&Co puddle jumper: Cowboy McCoy;
Ink: Memento: black; Copic: markers(as pictured);
Ranger: distress inks: antique linen;
Other: WRMK sew easy; orange embroidery thread; BG: buttons; wooden button; natural webbing ribbon; 3D foam;

Hope you have fun looking at the ladies wonderful creations too
