Kisses on the Praire wind

The color challenge at Gingersnap Creations this week is Denim, Rust and Dust (Tan) GC104 continuing with the month of May's "Wild West" theme. Mosie on down and join in the fun. Please check out the other Design team members delightful creations too. So, can you image a world before  phones  and just how precious receiving a letter would be. Having to wait for it would have been so hard, but finally getting it would have been ecstasy and that's what this week story is about.

My design team project started with the image of our cowgirl writing a letter to her sweetheart. I took the color challenge literally..... using real denim fabric and rusted metal stars and wire. For the tan color,  I used the leather embossed printed paper background. The metal wire is twisted and tied with navy ribbon to look like barbed wire, but a "sweet" barbed wire. Detailed her vest with color and rhinestones and finally, added the phrase  "I think of you and send you kisses on the prairie wind."

Send someone you love kisses this week.
Artfully yours, gerri

  1. That is so cool! I love how you come up with these great lines & to go with the graphics. Too fun! I'm loving the rhinestones too--what a fabulous look with all the elements. The denim is Perfect, with the stars & that great barbed wire look! I had to keep going back to look again to make sure I didn't miss anything. =)
    Thank you for your comments on my blog--I just love that you're a Chai T girl too. =) And I'd be thrilled for some fun rosettes--I just love a good yard sale with unfound treasures errupting. Sounds like you've found a few good ones yourself!
