Fired Brick Distress Ink

Have you ever started using an ink color-and then you can't put it down? My new favorite is Fired Brick Distress Ink. I made this ATC for a single swap and loved it. Now I have decided I will make some slightly different for my August Western swap on Stampin' D'amour. I like the sassy Gil Elvgren pin up juxtaposed over the weathered old cowgirl stamp. I am looking for a different embellishment, as I am out of those cool red star eyelets. That is the problem with buying the mixed color packs-there are never enough to complete a swap of 9 or 10 ATCs. I have amused myself this weekend with focusing on one Distress Inkpad at a time-and trying to create a monochromatic ATC with it-try it sometime-it's challenging.

I love your background stamp - wink - cause I have it too - wink - Awesome job with combining two totally different styles - using one color did it I think!
