A Taste of the Old West

It seems that I am entering a western phase in my stamping.
You will still be seeing other cards styles, but my western
stamps and calling, so that is what I am working on right now.

The boots are a five part stamp from
Kitchen Sink Stamps. I really really like
their stamps.

The image has been torn out and the edges sponged
with dark brown and then a narrow sponging of
black to achieve a burned look.
It is then mounted on the corrugated part
of a card board box. I use a floss/pick
to slide between the top layer of the cardboard
and the corrugations.
This layer was torn and sponged as well.
The side borders of both cards a relatively easy
and need no explanation.
Edges of the card base have been sponged with dark
brown ink followed by narrow sponging in black ink.
