Western Card

I have a weakness for western stamps and western style cards. Now I want you to note here, I said WESTERN. Not southwestern and not Indian. I am fond of the working west cowboy type stamps like the image on this card.
You can find a gold mine of this type of stamp at Sutter Enterprises. I have a lot of their stamps and find them to be high quality, deeply etched rubber on beautiful wood mounts. They can be ordered unmounted, but the wood is so lovely that all of mine are mounted. They just came out with some new stamps in Dec.
The mounted cowboy and the barbed wire are both from
Sutter Enterprises. The cowboy is stamped in dark brown and the wire in dark grey. The die cut corners are Quickutz.
It is a little hard to see in this picture, but there is a touch of blue chalked in on the upper portion of the picture and green on the lower. The edge of the first white layer that is stamped on has been sponged with dark brown and this could also be done around the card base if so desired. A decorative scissors was used on the dark brown cardstock layer.
