Hi, everyone! This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Shelly aka mcschmidty...congrats, Shelly! I chose this super cute card to case today....the cowboy's pose with his arms outstretched reminded me of my favorite 'bratty bear' stamp, plus I LOVE the Faux Wood technique. For my card, I used the 'Under the Stars' set from Stampin Up, along with some letter stamps by EK Success which I bought at JoAnn's more than a decade ago. The bear was stamped and watercolored, then the panel was cut out with the Double Stitched Squares Dies from Divinity Designs LLC. A craft knife was used to cut slits so that the linen thread could wrap around his paws. The card base was swiped with a matching ink pad, creating a 'Faux Wood' background. Silver mini brads were added to the corners.
Thanks for visiting today!
