We have another Technique Challenge once a month and is ending on the 14 September. 

The theme for that challenge is Masking Technique 

Well everybody here is my take on a Western Theme:

I had fund doing this card! I used a speckle cream card as my base and made an A5 card
I took this lovely medium brown handmade paper and wet the 
edges and just tore it to give me the distressed look
and took Walnut Stain Distress Ink and inked
the edges and rolled 1 corner
I took a bit of cream hessian cloth and fray the edges
and ran my the  Walnut Stain Distress Ink over the
the hessian
I used a Marianne Die form my frame and used a dark brown
card stock

Well did I had fun doing this Image!
I stamped my image that is from
Horse Portrait Oval with Brown Memento
and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder
I used 2 distressed inks Pumice Stone &
Walnut Stain to color my image
I cut it out and inked up with Versamark Ink
I took Deep Impressions Clear Embossing Powder
all over and heat it with my heat gun
I done this twice I really wanted a nice thick image
After about 20 min I started to bend my image to
created a crackle effect!
Then framed it with this lovely die cut frame from Marianne Designs
Well that is my Western Theme card.

The supplies I used from Sweet Stamps Store:
