Wanted Dead or Alive!

May 6th 2011
The new "theme" this month at Gingersnap Creations is "Wild West" and the latest Chestnut Theme Challenge is - "Cowgirls & Cowboys". I was a Ginger Gem for this challenge (GC101)!!


As usual I've decided to add my quirky sense of humour to my new card for this challenge because I couldn't resist using this picture and "hamming" it up! The cowgirl image I found at the Vintage Resources site and I've made it into a collage style card in sepia/brown tonings.


I made the embossed star background by embossing some textured white cardstock and then rubbing it with an Antique Medium I found in my cupboard LOL. I also rubbed some antique gold paint over it in some areas too and then used my Tim Holtz Distress Ink to stamp directly from the pad onto the embossed card - I'm happy with the effect I got.


The wording has all been printed using a "Western" style font to fit the theme and I've added a tag and fringe to finish the card off.


I hope you like it! And my silly sense of humour but when I saw that image and their 'furry' chaps I just couldn't resist!!
