Howdy Y’All from North Texas!! I’m Kathryn Morrow with a super bright and colorful Adventure Awaits tag made with Rita Barakat’s awesome Art Foamies Cowboy Boot stamp!

As you can tell with this tag, I love bright colors! Not only in my art work but in my life Turquoise and pink are two of my favorite colors! (I even have a guest bedroom filled with these two colors) Orange, purple and green are on the top of my list of favs as well.  What I love about this tag is that although there are many layers on this tag, the true star is Rita’s Art Foamies Cowboy Boot stamp!  After making the tag, I grabbed a piece of left over painted paper that I knew would make the boots pop.  A brayer can be used to add a layer of acrylic white paint right on the cowboy boot. Firmly stamp it on the paper. Repeat this step to make a second boot image. After they are dry you can cut them out.

I adhered the boots onto the tag, then grabbed another piece of left over painted paper and used a star punch to punch out several stars (who doesn’t think stars go with cowboy boots?!).  I then attached the stars to the tag.

I finished this fun and lively tag with a Tim Holtz chipboard phrase “Adventure Awaits” and added various colors of seam binding as ribbon to the top of the tag. When I think of cowboy boots, I think adventure. These Rita Barakat Art Foamies Cowboy Boots are made for walking right into an incredible adventure. If these boots could take you for an adventure, where would they take you?

I would love to know in the comments below!

Thank you for reading.

Blessings to y’all.

Fairy Stamps!

Hello All! I’m Kathryn Morrow, the Creative Design Lead for Rita Barakat Designs. I am thrilled to start off posting for the new design team.
We have amazing artists that will be showcasing the new RB Design products, designed by the ever-talented and most delightful artist, Rita Barakat.

I had so much fun using the new fairy stamps, both the background stamp and the set of individual stamps. I created a 6×6 card, starting with stamping the background stamp in Archival black ink on a separate piece of card stock. I then stamped the fairy, sun and clouds, mushroom and that oh so cute bunny also in archival black ink.

I cut out the images and added a thin layer of matte gel on all pieces, including the background image. By using matte gel, you can color with Pitt markers, heat between layers, and achieve nice shading.

I then used several different Wink of Stella glitter markers to add that subtle glimmer. I adhered the background to a piece of blue card stock and then used 3D dots to add the individual pieces.

It was so relaxing coloring such magical images. I can almost hear the flutter of the fairy’s wings and the smell the sweet scent of the flowers. I am blessed to be able to work with Rita’s sweet fairy stamps. They are so versatile! Thank you for reading and I hope you get some inspiration from this card.
