Super Nova/Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop

Mark's Finest Papers gave us a challenge -- create a project, any project, but it must feature circles. We were up for the task.
The Supernovas are all using stamps from Mark's Finest Papers.
For my card, I got the newly released Southwest Cowboy stamp set, which contains some great silhouettes! One of the requirements we decided to do for this Blog Hop was to incorporate circles into our design, so my circles are in the designer papers I used, the button, and the eyelets. For the background on my tag, I used the Distress Ink technique again from Tim Holtz. I really love doing this in my designs, and this stamp set was an ideal chance to play around with some distress inks. For this, I used Aged Mahogany, Forest Moss, and Brushed Corduroy inks. I made several tags, just trying to get one that made me say "Yeah!" when I got done with it, and this one was definitely IT! Don't you think it looks like an awesome desert sunset? The rest of my card is ragged and shabbied-up with some more distress inks, and my Tonic distressing tool.

Looking for some inspiration? Check out what the other Supernovas made!
