The Wild West at Gingersnap Creations

I have the honor and privilege of being chosen as one of the "Visting Artist" for the month of May at Gingersnap Creations. A blog challenge that I frequent so often for art inspiration and tutorials.... there are some wonderfully creative people at GC.
So let's start the Hoedown Y'all... This month we're headed west ...... The Wild West. Yep that's our theme, and this week the technique we'd like you to do is "masking."My image was a stamp from Oxford Impressions from the "Cowgirl Blues". I used Tim Holtz "Weathered Clock" Alteration diecut and cut out my own mask using Ideaology Mask Sheets. Reckoned I needed to distress things up abit so I used Faded Jeans and Vintage Photo for the base colors and the images were stamped using Brown Timber Stazon. Whoa Nellie !!!! what's that I found but a bunch of old pieces of copper, so I did a bit of sanding on them and stapled some on the tag. And the clock hands were embossed with copper UTEE and then chipped off. Take time to mosey on over to Gingersnap for all the deets on this months challenges. for some unbelievable talent and exciting inspiration. xoxo Toni
