Let me say I haven't been able to get enough of the "My Guy" collection at Heartfelt Creations! As soon as I saw these stamps a particular Bon Jovi song came to mind. I knew I would do something with it and this week it finally came to life!

"I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted, dead or alive..."
~ Bon Jovi

I had an a total blast creating this project. I used a 12x12 piece of cork for the background. I used my Big Bite to punch holes in it and then I dripped glimmer glaze in red along the sides. I also inked the edges in distess ink for shading.
I printed the poster out on canvas paper. The chains are Tim Holtz and the cogs were a gift from my design team gal Renea. (Thank you dear) I stamped the hat/rope and the guitar/boots on a shaded piece of red paper. I cut the stamps out for embellishments. I also did this with the horse shoes and put them in the center of my cogs.
I stamped the horse on craft metal because we can't forget the steel horse now can we?

Use deckle edge scissors to cut out a size of about 8 x 8 and ink the edges with distress ink. Cut a layer of pattern paper with deckle scissors and another layer of pattern paper (in this case I chose a newsprint) Using the deckle scissors just free cut the paper in a random way to resemble torn paper.

Ink chip board cogs in black ink and adhere the horse shoes to the centers. Ink the clock hand. Adhere a twig branch to left corner close to photo and adhere stamped image of guitar onto the twig and paper. Adhere clock hand beneath it. Adhere two Swivel Clasp chains with hot glue beneath the clock hand. Adhere cog to bottom left corner of photo. Adhere two cogs to upper right photo corner.
