Southwestern Cards

Nothing difficult here - rooster stamped with black ink on a white scrap, which is mounted on a black leather-textured scrap, which is mounted on snakeskin-textured paper. All is then mounted on a white card.

The circular southwest design is black-embossed on a piece of torn suede-paper. The gold textured paper has a black raffia bow, a string of beads, and two feathers glued to it. The striped feather came from a fly fishing store - fishermen use them to make flies.

The three circles are southwestern images black-embossed on copper paper. They are mounted on pop dots. The black strip was swiped with top boss, then sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heated. The little swirls are stamped with copper ink at random on a green card.

For this one, I first applied pastel pigment inks to a piece of white cardstock, sprinkled with clear embossing powder, and heated to set. Next I stamped the canyons image with black pigment, and used more clear ep to set that image. I cut the image into quarters and mounted it on black cardstock, which was then mounted on a pink card. I then created a small string of beads and adhered it to a black scrap, which is glued on the card.
