LTXTS12 - This is not an old postcard. It's a new piece of crumb cake cardstock that was burned with my heat tool. I added some Stampin' Up! stamps and from a fellow cow hand, Deadbeat Mark.

Inks used are early espresso, cajun craze, cherry cobbler, and marina mist. If you were born in Texas, or born elsewhere (like me) but got here as fast as you could, or if you just like Texana, then we welcome you to play along with us on Texas Tuesdays. Texas Tuesdays are every 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month. Just create something Texas-y and post it to your blog and leave your link in the comments and we'll go check it out!

So I pulled out my mountain scene stamp from Stampscapes and stamped onto glossy cardstock (photo paper) with Memento Black. Then I added some trees from Stampscapes and Stampin' Up! The Mare and colt from Stampabilities was stamped onto a separate piece of glossy cardstock then cut out. Using the Top Note Die from Stampin' Up! I created a window. I colored the images with my Stampin' Up! markers and a dauber. Added highlights with a white gel pen. The dotted Ranger Liquid Pearls to make the flowers. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! The flowers are Petaloo. The card is interactive in that when you pull and push t…
