I started my paper crafting adventure as a scrapbooker, but the stamping and cardmaking took over. I enjoy making cards because they are faster. I also enjoy trying new techniques.
For my first post here, I am posting the first card I ever made that used rubber stamping. I had made cards before that, but mostly what I call "scrapbook style". I made this for a card swap I think it was almost three years ago. It's still one of my favorite cards that I have made.
There aren't any special techniques on this card. It's just basic stamping and distressing. I chose to use the traditional red and green colors, but non-traditional papers to go with the western theme. The image was colored with colored pencil.
Paper: K & Co.
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Ranger)
