Artistic Outpost sitting on my table, just waiting for the perfect time to ink them up. After reading through the latest Technique Junkie Newsletter, I found a technique that I knew would be perfect with them. It's called Splattered Bleach and it is so darn cool!! I love the look it gives my card. The cowgirl was stamped on white cardstock and colored with Tim Holtz' Distress Markers. I'm still a bit iffy when it comes to coloring, but I'm trying to get better at it. :) I also colored the banners with markers.
The frame was created by cutting chipboard using the new Tim Holtz Cameo Frame Die and Sized Ovals from Sizzix. After it was cut, I embossed it with Tim's Woodgrain Texture Fade, painted it with a Pitch Black Dabber, and sanded it down. Finally, I coated it with JudiKins MicroGlaze and buffed it so it has a light sheen. I can't tell you how much I love the look of this! It really adds to the worn, vintage western feel I was going for. To finish the card, I added a little rusty star that I got at Hobby Lobby ages ago. It's the perfect touch!
