YEEHAW! I found my inner cowgirl with this months Gecko Galz challenge
My 1st project is this boot kicking Old West Saloon.
I had my bff build the saloon out of wood.
Painted it in old wood colors, then added wood grain digital paper
Yep, those saloon doors actually swing open + close!
A cow skull on the top of the building, as well as a wood wagon wheel, adds to the theme.
I also built a small bench to sit on the boardwalk.
An old cowboy sittin here, wondering where all the cowgirls came from!
Gecko Galz has these wicked awesome retro cowgirl images!
I cut some out and adhered them to the saloon rails. Others I glued them to a base so they would stand up, + also added a WANTED poster.
Next up, I created a COWBOY BOOT Card
Got the boot shape from Pinterest. Cut it out on white cardstock.
Used some plaid paper from my stash for the main boot, + brown textured paper for the boot heel, sole + leather strap.
Did stitching with a white paint pen
I love the image of the hard working cowgirl in the center. I glued her to another "stitched leather" adornment.
On the top of the boot strap is a red brad.
I also edged the entire card in Vintage Photo ink.
WELL BEHAVED COWGIRLS RARELY MAKE HISTORY TAG
A fun cowgirl tag, using this kick ass tag from Gecko Galz. Its from their Ride em Cowgirl digital craft kit
The southwestern blank tag with a cutout cowgirl image that has been 3d to the tag.
In the corner I made a leather look corner pocket using a cut up brown paper bag that I first colored with vintage photo oxide ink, then crumpled it up, smoothed it out, then rubbed black dye ink over the crumples. Makes it look like worn leather.
A western ticket over top.
I made a rope lasso. Its hanging from the word tag. There is also a gun charm on the top.
Finished it off with a blue brad on the southwest tag.
