Clearsnap Cowgirl


The Cardmaker blog team is hopping with the Clearsnap team today.
Clearsnap sent us some of the amazing Izink pigment inks to play with and I used them to create the beautiful background on this girly western card.

I used Cowgirl Boots by Stampendous for the main image.



To create the background I dropped Opaline, Tulip, Volubilis, and Gold Izink ink onto my craft mat and sprayed it with water.  Then I lay a panel of white cardstock on the ink and moved it around until it was covered with ink.  It's so pretty in real life!


And of course...if a girl has pretty pink cowgirl boots she needs a pretty pink lasso!


Both teams have created lots of amazing projects for you!

If you want to start at the beginning of the hop go to the Cardmaker Blog.
Otherwise, the next step on the hop is 
Vivian Keh.

Thanks for hopping with us!
