Trying a New Challenge

I'm playing along with a new-to-me sketch challenge from the Outlawz challenge. The sketch looked simple enough and I pulled out my well-loved Serendipity Mustang horse image to create my card.
I used the Sizzix plaid embossing folder, stamping with Memento Rich Cocoa, Potters Clay, and Dessert Sand inks on the top of the embossing folder, and then running it through the Big Kick. I stamped the image on water color paper and colored it with Tombows and an aqua brush. I cut 1" squares diagonally to create the corners, and added a horseshoe charm with a brad. This will make a great card for any guy who likes horses, so I'll add a sentiment when the occasion calls for it to be used.
Thanks for spending a few minutes of your day with me..........have a great Tuesday!

Great take on the sketch! And - oh my goodness - no copics! {grin} I keep popping by for inspiration - maybe I'll get to play a little this weekend after I get my garden planted!
