Alica is our host for challenge #245 at Shopping Our Stash and we want a project for the BIG or BIGGEST boys. (masculine/teen). Masculine cards are not the easiest for me to do but this time I have had so many firsts.....the first time I have used the stamp set. first time for the die that goes with it, first time I used one of my Kaleidacolor ink pads ( I have 4 that have never been out of the cellophane) I guess I'm not one for trying things I have not practiced with, I know it's not perfect but I closed my eyes and went with it.
The stamp set and die are from Local King Rubber I bought the stamp 4 years ago and the die two years ago at Scrapfest in Kitchener. Last year I bought more stamps and dies from them, this year I am not going near the booth. The ink pad I used is Autumn leaves and this was the first time I have inked a brayer to do a background. I had so much trouble cutting one horse I decided that's all the card needed. I will give this card to my son who's birthday is Thursday, On Sunday we celebrated Easter, our great grandson's birthday, my birthday and our son's birthday. One dinner 4 celebrations!!
I need a lot more practice with this horse die best I go look at the video of how to do it.
I finished the inside with the sentiment on a top note die cut
Thanks for stopping by today and head over to the SOS blog and see what the rest of the design team have made for the challenge.
Great card, Barbara! The imagery of a stallion running free is so powerful. All I could think of was the song "Wild Horses" by Kenny Rogers. Nice work!
well i, for one, would NEVER have known you didn't practice and practice and practice... cause this looks PERFECT TO ME!!!!!! ♥♥♥ (& i loooooooooooove the sentimet as well!) :)
Fab card Barb...I love that inside sentiment!!
Hope you are having a super awesome birthday today!! <3
I'm not sure you need to practice... this card looks awesome! And that inside sentiment is hilarious. :D
