This month's challenge on the Ranger group is to create something using Robin Beam's bandanna technique (also in the latest Technique Junkies newsletter). As you may know, I love this tech and wanted to try something different with it. One of my friends told me that it looks really good using brown ink instead of black....this made me think of rustic Western style, so that's what I went for. I had tried the wrinkle free distress technique before and could never get the look I wanted. Well, I finally did it the right way (using watercolor paper) and it came out fab! I almost hated to cover it up, to be honest. But I took a chance and loved how it came out. Background stamps are from Innovative Stamp Creations and cowgirl photo stamp is from Oxford Impressions' Cowgirl Blues plate.
