As posted on geckogalz.com...Wild Buckaroo


Instructions for m yWild Buckaroo
Hi guys..glad to be featured. It is an honor.
To make this amazing piece, with WildBill paper from the Deadwood Collection which just came out this month...very Rodeo friendly. I took the paper and took the Digital version of the Wild West Stamps # CD15 which I had print in the 8.10 version and ran WildBill thru the printer to get the Stamp to print on it. Then I mounted this sheet on a cardstock sheet which had a gold/brown color. From here I mounted this on watercolor sheet, with about one inch border showing, and on this one inch section I used Acrilic Daubers and actually just dabbbed the colors on the sheet.....black, brown, and gold, then Daubed the edges with clear embossing ink, and used Bronze Utee embossing powder, heated in the usual way. The small frame was cut from Cricut Wild West from Basic Grey paper. The Wild West frame was further enhanced with coffee color nailhead hotfix gems.
The boots were also made from the new stamp set, digitally run off and painted brown and embossed with Black enamel. I added a square of the Basic Grey behind it, and a Tim Holtz ticket.
The bottom edge is the Gecko Galz star border stamp, stamped in clear embossing ink, and also embossed with Bronze Utee, then cut out and adhered with pop dots.
The Verbage was cut from the same Cricut Wild West, painted again with the same Daubers. It was mounted so that the letters are about a half inch above the top edge of the canvas.
The whole set of papers was again glued to a Canvas board for stability, and the edges were wrapped with a jute twine, knotted and secured in the back.
Last thing added was a frame stand which I purchased in bulk from Texas Art Supply.
Please feel free to comment or if you need clarification, please ask.
Luv ya
