Love the boho west look!


This is so nice in real life! It is raining here today which we need so bad, but harder to get a good picture. It's dark outside. I wanted something that is more masculine, but don't have the new stamps to match the paper. I decided to see what I could come up with and here is the result. I started with sahara sand cs and stamped it with creamy caramel for the swirl from Baroque Motifs. I paper pierced the right side and across the top. Sponged the edges with creamy caramel as well. The bottom was done with my canvas bg stamp in chocolate chip. It is paper pierced across the bottom as well, but hard to see in the picture. I used really rust (not pumpkin like it looks in the picture) to do the border piece behind the dp from Stampin'Up! Love this stuff! I scalloped the edges with my Create-a-cut. Caramel gross grain ribbon and jute twine were tied at the bottom. Three brads are finishing the piece above the knots. I used my square scallop mega and giga punches for the medallion piece. In the spotlight was used for the flower piece. I finished the square with my papertrey borders and corners set. I used sage shadow, creamy caramel, chocolate chip for the ink. In the center of the medallion I used a pewter jumbo eyelet and set it with my crop-a-dile. I hope I didn't get it too girly. Does it look masculine to you?
