RODEO SWEETHEART CARD
So for this card I was inspired by Gecko Galz Retro Love Story collage set and went with a western theme so the colors had to match it. I used a kraft color card base, Tim Holtz paper by Coordinations, Gecko Galz Wild Wild West stamps, silver pearl pen by viva, silver beads, twine by May Arts and brown & blue ink by Ranger.
For the paper piece I mounted the image on I flipped over a piece of the coordinations paperand tore all the edges to make it look more western.
TRUE LOVES MEANING CARD
For this fun little card I adored the little Pierrots from Gecko Galz Valentine Pierrots collage sheet and took the one hotling the ring and using photo shop dropped in a stamp from Gecko Galz Heart and Soul Stamp set (you can use GIMP as well for this). I also used a left over piece of the Tim Holtz paper from the above card and a sheet of striped paper by Paper Studios. I again used the silver Viva pearl pen to add texture around the edge and a paper doilie by Wilton then from my stash added a piece of vintage black lace and pearl buttons. For amazing vintage lace and trims check out Ebay or garage sales....I love to find things and work them into designs.
