Well, I just couldn't stand it. I didn't expect to stamp until later next week since I don't have the best eye sight right now. However, I just received Theresa's Out West stamp set (GinaK Designs) and just had to make a card with it. I was so excited for this set to arrive. Theresa's mom, Geri, made a beautiful card that I love, and it was the inspiration for my card. You can see Geri's card here: http://stamptv.ning.com/photo/in-the-stables. She made the most realistic woodgrain for her card. I used the Cuttlebug Distressed Strips embossing folder to create my woodgrain. I also used a Cuttlebug cut/emboss frame for the horse, and sponged over it. The images were colored with colored pencils and OMS. The lasso was made with hemp and hung on a large brad. Howdy was black embossed.
