Oooooo, that would hurt! lol This sentiment and the barbed wire images are from this new set called Hey Cowboy. I put the two sentiment stamps with the smaller barbed wire image in the center all together on my acrylic block, inked with Rusty Hinge distress ink and stamped onto the white card stock. I then stamped the larger image of barbed wire around the edges to create a frame for the sentiment and sponged the edges of that panel with the Rusty Hinge ink. I matted it with the dark brown card stock and added brads to all four corners. The rust colored panels are embossed with the Cuttlebug stars folder and inked with Vintage Photo ink before cutting into strips and weaving them for the border on the brown card front.

Thanks for looking!
