100% Rugged

As soon as I received the Frantic Stamper "Cowboy Accessories" dies I knew exactly the image I would pair them with. Using the Kenny K "Tex" digi stamp, I colored it with Copic Markers and highlighted the belt buckles with a glitter pen. I inked in clouds around the image with a stencil and Close To My Heart ink. When I think Of cowboys I think of plaid. I dug around in my stash and found the plaid design paper as well as the burlap. The cowboy hat was cut with craft foam while the horseshoe and the boot spur were cut with foil paper. I left the "cut-outs" of the dies intact for a different look. I crocheted the "rope" with baker's twine. The sentiment was also cut with a Frantic Stamper "Ticket Stubs" die. The sentiment is from Close To My Heart.
