Welcome to the Stamper's Dream & Friends blog hop! I was so excited to receive Michelle's email inviting me to participate! Just wait until you see all the talented stampers hopping along today! The hop starts over at Debbie Olsons's blog, so if you would like to get caught up now is the perfect time! I'll share the rest of the list right after I show you my card. :-)
I'm sure most of you know that I live in Montana and live on a cattle ranch. And yes, I am married to a real life cowboy! :-) So it was just natural that I snagged the Wild West cling stamp set (by Tim Holtz) as soon as I saw it in Michelle's store!
To create my card, I went old school - no patterned papers & no copics! I started by stamping the bucking bronc image onto some kraft cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I then masked the image with some thin paper. To create the sunset background, I sponged Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans, Rusty Hinge, Fired Brick, & Frayed Burlap Distress Inks (by Tim Holtz). After removing the mask, I then colored the main image using my Prisma Colored Pencils and baby oil (used as a blending agent).
In this close-up you can see a bit of the of the Woodgrain Texture Fade (also by Tim Holtz) on the background layer as well as the itty bitty staples I added!
