Saturday Card: Horsing around

Here I am with a new stamp by Michael Strong
and it galloped into my house two days ago,
so I just had to play.

For these cards I used a gelli plate background
I still had lying around:
It is just perfect for the horse.
I took the stampand stamped with black on the 
background and used clear embossing powder.

I colored the horse partly with
a tea dye distress marker. It now
looks to me like the sun shines on his head.

The sentiment is by Create with TLC.

With the piece of background that was still left over
I made this card in combination with some 
stamps from the Wild Wild West kit.

I only stamped the horse partly like he was 
saying something.

This is the inside of the card.
