Desertly hot, a cowboy’s Bday

Hi Bloggers!

I know, I did not keep my promise! But here I am. Our move is officially finished, but I still need so much furniture! We had no time to go shopping, to visit Ikea or any other furniture store yet. All my scrap stuff in still in boxes in my future scraproom. Oh yes, that means that, since October, I still didn’t do any crafting! Awful! I am showing detox signs… :s .

But today, I am in the train (we are visiting family), and I have nothing to do for about 4 hours, so I will try to set up my promised round of 19 posts. We’ll see where I get. So this is my first one. I made this birthday card while thinking of my dad. He had a ranch for over 15 years and is all about horses. I wanted to get my newly (at that time) bought brayer out and try to make a degrading color background. I used black staz-on ink to ink up the bottom part of the image as this ink covers the paper more easily than classic ink. The strip of paper is made of plain very vanilla cardstock which I inked by a direct to paper technique with river rock ink and stamped the buffalo skull (difficult to see as it is mainly covered) in early espresso. I can’t remember which paper I used to cover up the base of the card, sorry. Finally I used my crop-o-dile to trim three corners of the main image and aged/thorn the last one. I hope you like it!

See you soon!
