OWH goes for a Western Challenge. Yee-haw!

The challenge this week is to make western theme cards for one of OWH's contacts.  Well, it just so happens, I DO have some western type stamps, so I dug them out and made some cards to send to Sandy.  I do not have any herds of wild horses stampeding across the plain, or cowboy type stamps, but I think these will work.  I hope you enjoy them...I had fun making them.

The following two I made using a stamp set from CTMH called Southwest Pottery.  I do not believe they make it anymore.  I've had it over 10 years.  It was fun to get it out again.

CS - stash
Striped DP - My Mind's Eye - Wild Asparagus
Ink - SU Soft Suede
Sentiment - Hero Arts / OWH - Dude
Ribbon was in a multi-pack of ribbons I received for some entry on the OWH site.  (I'm sorry, Sandy, I don't remember what I won this for, but LOVE the ribbons.)
Brad - stash

The treatment of the stamps here just shows portions of them, but there are 4 and they really are very nice pots.  
DP - Jet Set Sunny - Shimmerpaper - KI Memories
Ink - CTMH Autumn Terracotta
Raffia and brad - stash

Image and Sentiment - CTMH "Howdy" set
CS - CTMH and some more of this YELLOW paper Sandy gave us at one of the OWH card making sessions a couple of years ago.  Yeah, still trying to use it up.  :)
Ink - SU Soft Suede and Memento Tuxedo Black
Image colored with Copics
Spilled milk - Creme Pearl Pen

OK, OK, cowboys don't herd dairy cows, but I told my husband that she kicked over the milk pail because she wanted to roam the prairies with her western bovine cousins.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
