Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Coming to Town!

Right now there are several thousand trail riders, who have been out on thirteen trails in Texas during February recreating the Old West, heading back into Houston to signal the start of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.  The rodeo is a huge event in the Houston area and kicks off tomorrow when the trail riders converge on Memorial Park in the covered wagons and on horseback!

Houston Rodeo Trailrider "Wanted" card 


To make this card, I started with Soft Suede for the base.  I used the Stampin' Up! stamp set "Wanted" to make my own designer paper for the background, stamping various images in the trendy In Colors Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, Bermuda Bay, and Crushed Curry and afterwards sponging some Soft Suede around the edges and around on the paper.

To make the horse panel, I stamped the horse from "Wanted" in Soft Suede, then continued to stamp it without reinking to produce the lighter images.  I distressed the edges with the tool in the Cutter Kit (#106958).  You could also use the edge of scissors or just your fingernails!



I haven't used my "Wanted" set in awhile but I sure had fun with it today!  So if you are looking for a western stamp set, this would be a good one from Stampin' Up!  You can shop at my Online Store 24/7!  Email me with any questions.
