Heartfelt Creations Wednesday

Hi everyone, are you ready for some Heartfelt Creations inspiration!!!  Here is my card for today.  I have used some of the new images from the "My Guy" collection, don't you love these images.  For the background I used the "Basketweave Background" image, I stamped it all over the paper and added some shading with vintage photo distress ink.
My image here is from the "Western Collage" set, I stamped it 6 times and colored with Spectrum Noir markers and Prismacolor color pencils, cut all the little pieces and layered for the dimension.
Here is a closeup of the image, by the time I was done with the hat it had 5 layers.
I used some clear distress crackle paint on the edge of the background paper and covered the "Decorative Window" diecut, love the final result.
Thank you so much for stopping by, please hop over to the HC Blog for tons of gorgeous inspiration.  Have a wonderful and creative day.
