"Save a horse ride a cowboy" is what this card brings to my mind! We are challenged to use Cowboys and Cowgirls at Gingersnap Creations, so I went with the Cowboy theme! For Grungy Monday, Linda has us playing and splattering with inks using Tim's September Technique Challenge. Now Mr. Holtz used Adirondack Dye Ink Pads, but since I only had a couple of colors, I went with Distress Inks! I did distress my image backgrounds after the splattering and stamping. The blue background paper, I added to the puddle to give it kind of a leather type look. Of course, I covered most of it up. We used Tim's Typeset Alphabet die and corners from the ATC die. I was going to make a tag, but then decided this would be a birthday card or Father's Day card for my DH, who is a far cry from a "Cowboy."
blog candy offering. Now if you don't know Tracy, you really should take the time. She is a riot and a really cool person, not to mention she is guest designer for the "Altered Alice" this week, which reminds me to get creating something!
I also received a consolation prize from another Blogger friend, Lisa, over at LoveLee Notes! She had a blog giveaway and even though I did not win, she wanted to thank me! Lisa sent me the sweetest little box of tea conversation cards and a precious card. Was that lovelee or what? Lisa offers some interesting tips from time to time, so take a visit! Thank you, Lisa!
