A horse of course

This is a card made using an Inkadinkado stamp Horses. Its my favourite stamp at the moment.
I am not normally a horsey person but you know when you just look at a stamp and say "mmmm I could use that set in so many different ways". well that was one of those moments....

I will stop rambling on and begin,
Cream pearl card base, 1st layer wood grain card stock distressed with antique linen, scattered straw and just a touch of black soot.
This was then bound with string, next....




The image was stamped onto cream pearl card with black Archival ink , cut with a Marianne Design die, painted with Distressed Crackle paint (rock candy) once dry I swiped it over with scattered straw distress ink just to accentuate the crackles a little.

I stamped the Hero Arts sentiment on cream pearl card distressed the edge slightly with a pair of scissors then applied scattered straw distress ink and added a knot of the string

Just wanted to share
Thanks for looking
Sue
