Non-Winning Artisan Award- Western Boot card


Here is another card I made for Artisan Award this year. I loved these colors together (Basic Black, Baja Breeze and Cherry Cobbler). (Click on the card to see it bigger!)

I used the Newsprint designer series paper and squares of the colored card stock to make the cards background. I also sponged Basic Black classic ink around all the edges of the DSP. Do you see the words in the DSP that go so well with the stamped image? I totally planned it, but don't know if anyone else notices! :)

I stamped the boot image from the Out West stamp set in Versa mark onto watercolor paper and then embossed it using black embossing powder with a touch of dazzling diamonds in it. I added the Basic Black satin bow and an antique brad in the middle to finish it off.

Nothing too crazy and technical here, but clean and sticking colors I think make this card worthy! :)

Thanks for looking!
if you were at convention you may have seen this card on the display boards...it was there!

I totally noticed the coordinating punched squares with the boot. This is a smart and clever design--I really like the way you think outside the box. AWESOME job!
