Howdy y'all! I'm back with a tag inspired by the wild west!
I added lots of metal and rusty textures using Emerald Creek Embossing Powders for the July Rhinestone Cowboy Challenge at Emerald Creek Dares.
I started with some background stamping, and applied white gesso to the Tim Holtz Stripes Stencil. Once dry, I colored it with Distress Spray Stains (Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Wild Honey, and Fossilized Amber). Then I reapplied my stencil, and embossed it with EC Chunky Rust Baked Texture. The arrow and "wander" were stamped and embossed with EC Onyx Frost, and "wander" was colored with Distress Inks (Rusty Hinge and Fired Brick).
The stars are brads that I covered with black gesso, a coat of EC Ancient Amber Baked Texture, followed by Charred Gold Embossing Powder.
To make the cogs and screws, I applied paper clay to the Finnabair Mechanica Mould. Then I painted them with Dylusions (Ground Coffee) Paint, embossed with Ancient Amber Baked Texture, and topped with Chunky Rust Baked Texture. An awesome combination!
My favorite part is the belt, made with torn pieces of brown and dark brown tissue papers, adhered with Prima Soft Matte Gel onto a white strip of cardstock! Then I punched some holes, and embossed them and the strip edges, with Oil Rubbed Bronze Embossing Powder. The buckle was made using the same steps as the stars.
I finished it up with some rope around the hole, and a tassel made of yarn.
Thanks for looking!
