I realize these stamps are not very mainstream, but I guess that's what I love about them. It was too hard to narrow down my choices, so I ended up with three single stamps, and two full sets. I'd still like to have more. I chose to color these Wild Horses first.
I didn't use the vivid colors associated with Laurel Burch. Instead, I was inspired by a notebook I saw in a shop... similar, but different. Stamped with Versamark and embossed in copper, watercolored with Twinkling H2Os. Rich and earthy.
Poor horses... their sparkle and shimmer is tethered by the limitations of my photography.
I used a copper brushed metallic card base, a strip of gold trim. Inside is a sentiment and sun motif from a different Laurel Burch set.
A small motif from that other set for embellishment on the front.
I'm going to categorize this as a masculine card, but I'm sure I'll send it to a girlfriend.
I'll be back with flowers on Friday. Enjoy the rest of your week, and I'll hope to see you then!
