Technostamper Challenge #15

I'm trying to catch up on Mary Jo's Technostamper Lunchtime Sketch Challenges again! We've been out of town, preparing to go, or so totally busy for so many weekends recently that it has cut into my participation. Hopefully I can now get with the program again!

This sketch is #15, even though the posted sketch for today on Mary Jo's blog is #16.

For the first time I took the liberty of turning the sketch on it's side because I could just see the Bronc Buster in that center oval. The Sanded background stamp makes a great backdrop for the image which was cut out with the Coluzzle oval template, as was the layer of Chocolate Chip behind the image. I distressed all the layers with the distressing tool from the Cutter Kit. The Brocade Blue layer was stamped with the Paisley from the Wanted set, then sponged and the corners clipped with the Ticket Corner Punch. The edges of the Kraft card had the Close to Cocoa ink pad dragged across them to give an aged look.

The words are part of the "Genuine" stamp which is in the BB set; they were inked with a Chocolate Chip marker, punched out then layered. Silver brads throughout and Chocolate Chip grosgrain finish off the card.
I think I'll give this card to my DH (dear hubby) for Father's Day. : )
