Count your Blessing

Over at Gingersnap Creations, we are continuing with the "Wild West theme". The challenge is "Scene Stamping" GC103. Come visit Gingersnap Creations and join the wild west fun. My scene is way out west, of course.  I think the America west has colors and scenery that are so inspiring. I understand why Georgia O'Keeffe painted and loved it so much.
Just about all the stamps are from from Inkadinkado and are over 20 years old! I always said that I should get rid of them, since I've only used them a couple of times. Now, I am so glad I kept them. The cowgirl, tiny house and trees are from Stampendous. I started with a desert orange colored background using a sponge and reinkers. Over stamped the scene in black and colored the cactus with pencil. Edged this with little skulls, a button and ombre ribbon. The background stamps are Indian pottery and blanket patterns. I put this completed scene in a frame, I pivked up this weekend at a church sale. I  added the corner silver buttons for some western shine.
Count your blessing everyone,
Sincerely, gerri
