Wild Wild West

Hello Everyone!
A quick post to share a new creation with you.

I've been wanting to make another 3D interactive calendar
using some of the new Magnolia stamps.
I finally had time to craft and created this Wild Wild West scene calendar.

The images were water colored with Distress Inks.
I have made these cactus and stones using air-dry clay and
colored them with Copics when dry.

I used TH Picture Wheel die to cut out the base for the background.
The wheel is perfect for making this calendar as it has
12 cutouts, one for each month :^).

I attached a Spellbinder scallop circle die cut to the back
of the picture wheel with a brad. 
You can turn the wheel to change the month and 
turn the 2 stone dices for the date.

I also added 2 matchbox compartments to store the greeting tags.
The sentiments are from Magnolia and SU.
I added "Go ahead" from Clint Eastwood's wild wild west quote
"Go ahead, make my day" to one of the tags.

I have used Kort and Godt cream chrysanth flowers,
tiny Ric Rac ribbons, and natural button twines
from The Ribbon Girl Shop.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have good day.


I wish to enter this creation in the following challenges:

Katie, you never cease to amaze me. You keep coming up with unique projects. This one is just fabulous. Love the scene you've created. Awesome colouring of the maggies--I should really give distress inks a try. Wow, those date dies really look like rocks. I can see a lot of work and time went into this, but it was well worth it. Kudos.
