Mare & Colt

I love horses so when I came across this sentiment by PSX I had to snatch it up.  The Mare & Colt were stamped on Whisper White paper in StazOn Black then colored with Creamy Caramel and Close to Cocoa Markers.  The grass was colored with Old Olive and Always Artichoke using a Blender Pen.

The sentiment was inked with VersaMark then Early Espresso and embossed with clear embossing powder and a heat gun.

The pretty brown suede ribbon is from American Crafts and the antique brads are from Stampin’ Up.

A close up of the horses.

Hi Donna
Wow, didn't this card turn out well! I love the sentiment too, says it all about riding with the wind in your hair. My teenage years saw riding at a local stable most weekends and out on the trails you forgot about everything else.

Donna, love the horses!!! They are colored beautifully - I feel like I am standing in a field watching them, so peaceful. The sentiment is perfect and true.
