The Diner's Kit this month is called Old Fashioned Fun and boy is it! Some great images!
The weekend before making this card, we had gone to a friend's wedding who is the lead singer of a country ban. The bridesmaids were wearing black cowgirl boots and there were horseshoes wrapped with pearls and wire everywhere. It was lovely! I wore my cowgirl boots too! So I knew I wanted to make this card similar...fancy but still country. This was my second go round on the background and I was much happier with it. I knew I wanted some metal so I added some Making Memories copper eyelet-like things going down the side. Some distress ink (Walnut Stain around edges and Fired Brick for the swirls). Staz-on Timber Brown for the sentiment and boots. I used some Tim Holtz Mini Mask Floret for the background and sprayed with a mix of Perfect Pearls Sunflower Sparkle and Smooch Spray Candle Glow to get the color and shimmer I wanted. The red behind the banner is a velvet paper which adds some texture, but you can't tell with the picture. Anyways! Thanks for stopping by and some of you reading my super long paragraph!
Go get some more inspiration from the other GRS Ladies!
