CCC#33 Altered Metal with Alcohol Inks

I love this stamp from the 'Queen's Dresser Drawers', just a little plug, she's got a lot of great stamps. I used a metal star for this weeks technique, check out the how to in the CCC manual. This was simple and fun. I think the colored metal adds a nice coordinating detail, so I will be keeping this one in mind too. Mosey on yonder to Linda's Studio L3 and All Things Tim, for some samples that'll knock yer socks off!

  1. Oh I have to order that stamp!! (I'm in a rural area where there are lots of cowboys and cowgirls. I grew up riding horseback, myself.) Love your colors...everything about this tag.

  4. I don't know-- I think this cowgirl is WAY too fabulous to have the blues! What a spectacular work of art, Shelann! The design is great, the colors are GORGEOUS, and the altered metal star is absolutely perfect. I love the rope laced through the edge and little rings along the side. Awesome work, my dear!
