Southwestern Boots

Today's sample uses Theresa's "Out West" and some of the new "Rough and Rugged" Digi paper from Gina K Designs. These colors together remind me of Santa Fe (or rather, what I imagine Santa Fe is like, hee hee!) I love using this little hat from the set popped up in a corner that needs a little sumthin'...

I stamped my red paper with Versamark and the Gina K Pure Luxury Ivory paper with Antique linen Distressing ink with the crackle background from "Bold Flowers" to give them some old West texture. I sponged the Antique Linen around the edges to the Nestabilitie cut oval and then glued my hemp twine using the Quickie Glue Pen around the edge to make a frame, using the embossed rim as a guide, tracing it with the pen. Isn't that fun how the vertical rope on the patterned paper and the the loop create a lasso? Boots and hat are colored with Copics.

Hope you had a heckuva weekend, take care! More Nestablities fun comin' up!
