Day three of this Western-Themed blog hop brings one of my favorite silhouettes in my collection of stamps.  I'm not sure exactly why it's a favorite.  Perhaps it's a favorite because I have made numerous cards for my grandfather with it.  It just might be a favorite because of the all the different ways to use this stamp.  Anyhow, it's a great image from a great set!

Well, hello!  It's May and we are onto a Western Theme this month.  I broke out a couple of fitting stamp sets and created this scene on patterned paper.  I just love when your paper can do the work for you!  I used  a couple of strategically placed post-its and I was "off to the races", if you will.  I sponged the edges of my patterned paper, added some brads and mounted it to my card base.

I really love how this technique turned out.  I did have to try it a couple of times before I got it right and even then, I think I may have made too many little sections.  I used a couple of sets to create my card and you can very obviously see my dragonflies as my bugs.  I couldn't resist using the other featured set on my last card of the hop.  With 10 different dragonflies, it's an incredible deal!

Do you ever find that after making a particular kind of card, your crafting area is just wrecked?  Well...my craft room is a disaster!  And look at this beauty of a card.  I only wish you could also see the layer under the embossed vellum overlay.  It's really tough to see, but there are pink and blue butterflies amidst the orange.  I relied heavily upon Butterfly Essence for this gem!  It's an amazing background for multiple techniques.  It's featured at the top of the post.

Sandy's tutorial was very easy to follow and made such a cute focal point for my card.  I really like the added dimension of the technique.  I borrowed the little inchworm from Spring Things to compliment my potted tulips.  He's crawling along the edge of my pot.  I also used the smaller pot from Pots and Vases.  I just wanted it to fit on my invitation sized card.
