It's Hambo Hoedown Time!

For this week's challenge, we are to use burlap in our creations.

A total first for me.  I went to Hobby Lobby and learned that burlap comes in many colors.  Gotta tuck that information away for future reference.  I decided to get a light beige burlap, and incorporated it into my project.

The beautiful image is "Cornucopia" from Hambo Digital Stamps.  I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers, along with some shading and highlights with Prismacolor pencils.  Crystal Stickles also adds some sparkle and highlights to the image.

Using the easel card tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers, I constructed my base and card front with burlap, patterned paper from Lasting Impressions, brown cardstock and kraft.  A circle Nestabilities was used to cut the circle, and paper piercing and faux-stitching was done with a colored pencil.  A rich rust ribbon was also used.

I used two of the three sentiments included in "Cornucopia" from Hambo Digital Stamps.  I printed them onto kraft, with the sentiment on the base being cut by a Nestabilities die.

I hope you can join in on all of the fun with us at the Hoedown this week. All of the challenge details can be found right here on the Hoedown Blog.  Remember you must use Hambo images to play along...but that's easy to do (there are some freebies here if you don't have any). If you play along this week, you will be sent next week's Hoedown image for free.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog!
