Wild West ATC

     I am exchanging ATC's with a couple of internet friends.  The theme was "The Wild West".  I started with a barbed wired background paper and then stamped the line of cowboys across the bottom in black  and embossed.  Next the Retro Cowgirl was stamped over everything and colored with Prisma pencils and Copics very lightly.  The small cowgirls embellishment attached with a brad to the middle is another stamp.  It was stamped onto acrylic with stazon and backed with a piece of light leather colored paper.  The paper was distressed first and the acrylic was attached with sepia crystal glaze.  The star brads were added to each corner and then I distressed the edges of the entire card and added some distress die.  Last I punched holes in the side and whipped stitched 1/8" brown satin ribbon through the length of the card.

     Hoping my internet buds like this little ATC.  I had forgotten how fun they were to create.  Maybe I'll get into a few more trades soon.  It's always wonderful creating and sending off the little pieces of art and then having the anticpation build waiting to see what will come back.  It's never a disappointment.
