Going Wild at Gingersnap Creations

or rather Wild West! How fun! Our newest monthly theme on the GC blog is Wild West!

Back at the ranch the Gingers are teaming up with the Technique Junkies Design Team to provide some great inspiration for our upcoming challenges and, with Technique Junkies as our May Sponsor, there will also be great prizes for our challenges.

Being a long time TJer, I had to get in on the fun early. Of course, being the noted rogue I couldn't join in without bending the rules so I used a couple of my favorite TJ techniques but not quite as they are supposed to be done.

I took a great background I had made with the Reinker Splash technique and paired it with the Block Collage technique which typically is done with a monochromatic color scheme....which I didn't actually use. Here's what it looks like:

Wild West Cowgirl
Stamps: all images from Cowgirl Blues (Oxford Impressions)
Cardstock: Kraft (Stampin Up); glossy cardstock (Stampland Chicago)
Ink: Jet Black (StazOn); Ballet Blue, Night of Navy and Creamy Caramel (Stampin Up)
Technique: Reinker Splash and Block Collage (Technique Junkies)

Hope you'll join in on all our Wild West fun at Gingersnap Creations! We have tons of great challenges, tutorials and features coming up in May!
