Leather Boots!!

Love these little boots from Theresa's "Out West" set, they were stamped on LEATHER PAPER from Paper Temptress (all her leather paper is 25% until May 10!) and then shaded and colored with Copics before cutting them out and popping them up. I wanted to show as much of this cool texture on both the black and gray colors so I just did more wide layers.

Isn't this paper incredible?? I used my Scor-Bug all the way around for the piercing and added some adhesive metal dots to the corners and created a little lasso with some natural hemp and adhered around the corner and under the mat. isn't that font fantastic? The whole card is just bringing out "my inner cowgirl", makes me want to go order a sassparilla in a heavy accent... ;)

Happy Sunday!
