Hi all, it’s Gwendolyn here and I’m back to showcase the Hero Arts “Cowboy Adventure” stamp set which you can find from the a2z Scrapbooking store. I love this stamp set as I can make masculine cards for graduation, farewell, retirement… or even a birthday card for someone who loves travelling!
The idea for this card came from our visit to the Grand Canyon afew years ago when we were doing a family road trip on the Route 66 & I will always remember the sunsets during that trip as they were spectacular!
I started out by blending in Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmelade & Mustard seed distress inks to create my sunset background. I then stamped in the mountains with Hero Arts Caramel hybrid ink & coloured them in with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator alcohol markers. The cowboy was stamped in with Hero Arts black ink and to make the large arched rock, I stamped the arch image twice, fussy cut them, and used the underside of one to create the opposite rock formation. I then trimmed them down so they would fit snugly over the cowboy and adhered them on foam tape so it would give the illusion that the cowboy was behind this rock formation.
The sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped with Versamark clear ink on black card stock and heat embossed with Hero Arts White detail embossing powder. I cut the sentiment strip so that it would resemble mountains too and mounted it on foam tape too.
Well I hope you liked my card and if you would like this stamp set, you can custom order it from the a2z Scrapbooking Etsy store. Don’t forget to use my personal code, which you can find below, for a 15% discount for every order over $25!
