Feelin' a little country today! I used the new cowboy boots for my card today. Several of the DT Members inked these up for today's Blog Hop and I love how they all turned out so differently! There is a coordinating die cut to match the stamp too... so no fussy cutting! The bandana die cut in the background was cut out of kraft card stock and then I inked it up using a little chestnut roan. To keep the wrapped jute string tight and in place I used a layer of score pal tape to hold it as I wrapped it around the panel.
