Bronc Birthday

My Friend Judy has an awesome tutorial for a double pocket card using double sided designer paper and it is the Technique Challenge on Splitcoast today. Be sure to check out Judy's Blog and play along! I used SU! Western Sky DP and very vanilla cardstock for the tags. The twill was preprinted with the horseshoes. Ink is all Tim Holtz Distress, Walnut Stain, Black Soot, Frayed Burlap, Old Photo, Faded Jeans. The edges of the DP were sponged with Vintage Photo, the tag edges with Faded Jeans and Vintage Photo. The twill was stamped with Frayed Burlap stamped off on scrap paper once. I rock n rolled the genuine image in Walnut Stain after inking the stamp with Faded Jeans and the Bronc with Vintage Photo and then Walnut stain. I also sponged the twill to dirty it up. Grosgrain and leather was tied through the jumbo eyelets.


  1. I just love the look of this! The leather is awesome, as is the twill!

  2. Very nice...I love how you've "aged" everything. Great job on this challenge. Joan

  3. Wow this is fabulous love the look you achieved with the vintage inks!! You rock always, so no surprise!!


    As always--the details put this OTT (over the top)!!
    My favorite details are the ribbons/ties and teh stamping along the edge of the pocket!

  5. Wow Shelly Gorgeous and awesome colors!!

  6. I just ordered this set, I can't wait to get it!
