Giddy Up Cowboy

I may have mentioned a few times how my family love western movies, I bought this stamp set originally to use for my mum but I decided that I would use it for my uncle instead. I had seen a few cards on pinterest I like and I have based the card on those, I haven't copied any one but taken elements from different ones to create this.

I stamped the background with my new woodgrain kaisercraft stamp, these are an absolute bargain and I have bought quite a few different ones. I wanted to create my own paper as I couldn't find one that went with the look I wanted, I think I will be doing this a lot more.

I decided to change the sentiment but forgot to take a picture before I went in the post. As no full sheets were harmed in the making of this card I am off for a play at the snippet playground.

Image: "inspired by western" MFT
Ink: "rich cocoa" memento
Dies: circle stax, barbed wire, blueprint 3 and western charms all MFT
Cardstock: "early expresso" stampin up and "kraft" recollections
Background stamp: "woodgrain" Kaisercraft
Sentiment: "Howdy" mft

Challenges: Snippet Playground
