Cooking up a cowboy image

I spent part of Saturday playing in the Virtual Stamp Night challenges at SCS.  One challenge called for using a technique to create faux leather with masking tape and clear embossing. It's a technique I've done before and, while the results are fun, tearing up little bits of masking tape can get tedious.  So, the two small diamonds on this week's Card Patterns sketch (#130) were the perfect size -- big enough to have impact, small enough not to take too long -- for me to use this technique.
The VSN theme this time was rodeo, and paired with the leather technique, a masculine card seemed appropriate. The image is one I simply found through a yahoo image search.  A little plaid paper, a few eyelets and lots of piercing sponging around the edges completed the look.
