Southwestern Bear is one of the new southwestern themed dies from Die-Versions. I used traditional colors and design. Luckily I had an old (and I mean at least 15 years old) stencil that had southwestern designs on it. I gave one of the patterns a more modern twist by using embossing paste in the design. While the embossing paste was still wet, I sprinkled Nuance dye based powders all over and then let it air dry. Once it was dry, I spritzed the entire are with Dylusions Ink Spray (Pure Sunshine). The great thing about embossing paste is that it acts as a resist, so the ink wiped off with no problem at all.
Even though I created a card, I could see this as a wall hanging or create a series of these in various colors and framed individually and placed in a grouping.
