Say Goodbye to the Outlaw

That’s right, the Outlaw Designers Series Paper will be no more after December. This paper works so well to create cards with the BOHO/Western look that is so popular right now. And, since my fiance lives in Texas you can believe I have had a lot of fun with this set.

This card was all about recreating the dusty and aged appeal of western style. I chose groovy guava and sage shadow, because they both brought me to the southwestern color scheme. And, the striped paper from the Outlaw Designers Series Paper which is slightly aged looking went perfect. I stamped the star and flourish stamp from Bronc Buster in groovy guava ink onto the cardstock, and sponged close to cocoa ink onto the sage shadow paper to age it as well. I then added brads to add a hard, more masculine element to the card. And, finally the main image. I used a split negative technique (if you would like to learn more about split negatives be on the look out for my class on them in the new year) in close to cocoa on the confetti cream and whisper white on the close to cocoa. I didn’t emboss the split negative, because I wanted it to have a more dull aged appearance instead of shiny and new.

This card was so much fun to make, and this stamp is a perfect set for cards and scrapbooks.
But, remember you want to stock up on the Outlaw paper before the end of December or it will be gone forever.
