...and I'm still in Western mode...which just means that I owe you samples of the banners and the Labels 18 that the DT have been previewing...
I am trying to move into the new room over this weekend and today I was up to my oxters in building bookcases. 10 points to the first person who can say what oxters is...lol.
So once again I've made a mess of the plan for all of us to show you samples pertaining to one set only!! I am heartily sorry, but it's an exceptional circumstance. I have never had a dedicated space of any sort to craft in and I am on the final push to get it sorted out!
Anyhow, here's the links to see what the ladies have done with today's sets Vintage Banners and Bitty Banners.
My cards today are quite straightforward, on this first one I used a piece of torn card, which I sponged and stamped repeatedly with the cowboy image. I layered it over a background made from the stamped woodgrain ( Way out West) at the top and the western text border (Way out West) at the bottom. The sentiment, from Back in the Saddle was simply trimmed out and layered onto a square of cork, which I had inked with blue ink.
I used the western text border from Way out West together with the line of stars (also way out West) to make a jaunty background for my Gee thanks card. These western sets have inbuilt masculine appeal but I would have no problem sending this to a female friend.
I think this last simple card is quite cute, I used a few different colours of ink to create interest on a minimalist scene. The sentiment is from Back in the Saddle and the cactii (cactusses...? lol) and crescent moon are all from Way out West. I find that the western images quite strong and lend themselves well to these minimalist cards, which is great when you're pushed for time!!
Be sure to call back tomorrow to see the artwork for the new sets and to hear a little announcement about the future of WMS!!! Seems like there's a million and one things happening at the moment!!
