Speedy the Cats' Friends Challenge #8 Embossing

Welcome to Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge! This Saturday the challenge is to use embossing on your card.


These great cowboy stamps are from a set called Southwest Cowboy that will be released in July by Marks Finest Papers.

I black embossed the cowboy, row of cactus and sentiment on a panel cut with a square Nestability. The copper color paper is a wonderful metallic paper from MFP - I'm afraid you cannot appreciate the shine in the photo. I sponged the textured cream cardstock (also MFP!) with Ranger Tea Dye ink to give it that dusty desert feel!!

Here's what I stamped on the inside of my card. I just love the barbed wire! What a great set for those masculine cards we all need from time to time!

We'd love to have you join us in this embossing challenge - jump on over to Marks Finest Papers Blog and link your embossed card there. You could win a free stamp set!!

If you load your card on Split Coast please use Speedy's Friends in your keywords.
