I've got to say, I'm sorry to see this set go. I don't know why I haven't shared these cards with you before, but am doing so now. This set is on the Stampin Up Last Chance List and will be gone forever after June 30th. It's the perfect set for masculine cards, for horse lovers, ranchers, and equestrians everywhere!
This card has a couple of techniques on it. I used the rock & roll technique on the medallion. To do this, I inked it up in Really Rust, then rolled the stamp on the Chocolate Chip pad, giving the image two colors.
The next technique is the one of motion. I stamped the horses and then, without reinking the image, tapped it behind the original image. Cool, eh?
For the card to the right, I used the medallion in the background, just because I think it's so pretty and it gave the background interest.
I tore the Sage Shadow paper and then sponged it with Not Quite Navy. The frame used the faux leather technique.
The "Wanted" sign was inked and distressed with Chocolate Chip ink, then I used the Distressing Tool from the Cutter Kit to get the look I wanted. I used Hemp to hang it.
Now, for my favorite card using this set. This card is a Diorama card and went to one of my bffs, Ms. Marsha Brown. We went to a rodeo a couple of years back in Cheyene, Wyoming. She loved this card and I'm sure it reminded her of our time together.
I used the medallion (can you tell that I really like that stamp!?!) to stamp all over the outside and middle layer of the card.
For the final layer, I used another all time favorite stamp set "Lovely as a Tree". It's hard to see it in this photo, but trust me, it's there.
Here's the inside of the card. Just click on the photo to see it larger.
