DCM 'Hat Boutique'

It's Zuzana's turn to set the dare over at Daring Cardmakers this week and wants us to use 'Hats' on our cards.  Any type of hat, whether its straw, cowboy, top, vintage, wedding, winter, baseball cap....its up to you!

So here's my take on the dare....


I was stumped for a while on what I could use for a 'hat' and then remembered this fabulous cowboy stamp set from WMS that I haven't had a chance to ink up yet.  The cowboy has a hat so hopefully that counts!


I loved how this turned out.  I was inspired by Belinda's sample card in the WMS shop for the inked cowboys.  I used distressed the papers to give an aged look to match the image before adding some ivory button twine. 

Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT cards.
