I recently got this great MFP Southwest Cowboy stamp set in my hands and could hardly wait to create something with it since I just love horse images! "Anything goes" for the challenge at Cowgirl's Sunday Stamp'en challenge, so I thought this card would work! I stamped the black background with the SU weathered backgrounder in Versamark and then embossed with clear detail ep. I also stamped the PTI Soft Stone ATC mat with Ranger Pumice Stone ink using the same weathered backgrounder, but I didn't emboss that panel. I stamped the images in Versamark and embossed them with white ep, then chalked and sponged to try to create a dusty scene since the horses are all running. I added some tan hemp and frayed the ends to give it a rustic look, and embossed the sentiment with silver ep. Those faux brads are made from a cereal box, embossed with silver ep and punched with the larger hole of my Cropodile. They go through the mail without extra postage or bulk, and they're a wee bit cheaper too :D
Happy Stampin' and thanks for comin'!
