Vintage Cowboy ATC's


Yesterday I got a package in the mail from a swap and these coolio stamps were on it..so I thought hey that would be a neat ATC thing.. so voila!

Details:
For some I used paper from Cosmo Crickets wanted pad and added some Vintage Photo distress ink around edges
others I used grungepaper embossed with Stars cuttlebug embossing folder and inked with vintage photo and one with Barn Door distress inks. Crackle paint in Vintage Photo and I think Fired Brick on one.
The stars some were cut from the embossed grungepaper and the chipboard stars were in my stash...I inked them first with vintage photo distress ink then used Tarnished Brass crackle paint and a dab of Vintage Photo crackle paint as well. The cowboy hats were charms from Etsy and the lariats are a wired string I found at Dollarama in the craft section. Anchored that with Tim Holtz long fastener brads and one some used a dimensional foam square under it, some were the E 6000 glue.

Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show- grunge
Crafty Pad- embossing
Beary Sweet Challenge - Vintage
Drunken Stampers- dry emboss and paint
Alphabet Challenge- U for unused stash (chipboard stars)
Little Red Wagon- stars
ABC Challenge Blog- D for distressing

These are very cool, and what a great way to recycle using the stamps (assuming they have been used for post already) will definitely start saving stamps now!
