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.
