WOOOHOOO - I've changed images...hehehe. But really, I haven't, since it's another silhouette! I got it from the equestrian page and I had to get it because I *heart* horses. I don't have one now (hubby doesn't like them), but when I lived in British Columbia, I used to ride A LOT! In fact, I went to visit my friend where I used to ride last time I was up there, and they now have around 200 of them. Oh the beauty of a horse running through a pasture, wind through it's mane!
I tried to capture a horse in motion in the card, by stamping the first one, NOT re-inking and then stamping again, and again. This was done with chocolate chip ink on kraft CS. I matted it on some Outlaw DP (retired - Stampin' Up!), added a strip of pierced caramel and them put it all on a chocolate base. I tore the Dp for a bit of distressing (great for a guy card), and then sponged the white edge with caramel ink. I stamped the stitchesin chocolate, and then added the punched CS (word window - Stampin' Up!) holding them on with copper brads. I got them from my local $1 store. Finally, I stamped the sentiment on the bottom, under my torn edge. I think this would make a great retirement card for a guy moving on in life. Hope you enjoy it, as much as I did making it. All images are from Starving Artistamps. Have fun and happy stamping!!
