The Good Old Outdoors!

Welcome to Artistic Outpost's Product Focus Blog Hop for July, "Nature and Outdoors" and all stamps in this category are 20% off through Saturday, July 11 and no promotional code is required. For extra inspiration and great art be sure to visit the rest of the fabulous DT!
Painted tag with a tan colored acrylic paint and did a two step cracked and then sprayed with Tattered Angers Chalk spray in Chocolate.
The desert scene was stamped directly onto the tag with Black Archival. Our AO Cowboy was watercolored using Tattered Rose and Gathered Twigs. Sentiments were stamped also with Black Archival, cut and shaded. The Cactus and Supplies were stamped in Coffee Archival, fussy cut and shaded. Finished off with a little rope, which my husband assured me that Cowboys did not tie that neat or tight of a loop! So there goes my life as a Cowboy! Well you don't have to be a Cowboy to join in the monthly "Show Us Your AO Art" and there is always a store gift certificate to be won, so gather up some AO stamps and get inky!
I so appreciate your visit today as I know with Summer and vacations we are all strapped for time. Have a lovely week!

Really pretty wild west type of tag, Terry. You've done a great job with the AO stamps. I love your crackled background. It almost looks like old, worn leather. Love the black stamping on the tan background. The "rope" is a great dimensional touch, too. <3 Candy

Wonderful Terry, love that crackled background, reminiscent of an old, dried up lake bed! I just got this stamp set from AO and love it.
