where the wind blows wild and free, there's a lovely spot, just the only one, that means home sweet home to me... Those are the words to the State Song of Nevada by Bertha Rafetto. Even though I am in Utah, those words ring true for here as well. The desert is so lovely at sunset and sunrise. The colors of orange, red, yellow, and blue are so vivid against the black or deep purple shadowed mountains. I have never experienced such beautiful sunsets as I have in the desert (although there have been some heart stopper sunsets along the Oregon Coast as well). Those desert sunsets were the springboard for this western themed card.
In this card, I've included a little friend for Tilda. Tilda and friend - I'll call him Beau - as well as all other colored areas have been colored using distress inks. I tried to make Beau's shirt look like green corduroy and his chaps like brown suede. I distressed the paper's edges, added burlap for texture, and lots of layering, and included a copper tag holder on the front. I also fringed and removed strands from the burlap strip to make it more interesting. Hey, I tried! LOL I've had this card in my head for such a long time. I just loved creating this card!
