Encourgement

Hi there, I have a quick tag I made this week with Cowgirl Strength.  I love the power of this sentiment, especially coupled with the Word Band that says "Encourage your hopes not your fears".  The tag started with a jumbo manila tag stamped in jet black archival with the cowhide stamp from this set which was then colored with Faded Jeans DS.  Then I dry embossed the Paisley pattern onto white CS with a old favorite Cuttlebug embossing folder and sponged it with Barn Door DI. The sentiment and the photo stamp were both stamped onto white CS with jet black archival.  The photo stamp was colored with a Barn Door distress marker.  The stars were cut from canvas and colored with Faded Jeans DS and then I stenciled a silver star on each using Wendy Vecchi's silver embossing paste.  I also embossed a silver tone #1 with Weathered Wood distress embossing powder.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Great red, white and blue celebration of her strength - love those silvery stars and the twine tying the word band is very cool.
