Living out west, as I do, this stamp reminded me of the beautiful mountain ranges on the horizons. I am still awed by the sight every day. I love it. I stamped the image using Faded Jeans distress ink and added a little bit of Elegant Eggplant and greyed the horse and cactus just a little bit. I then tore the edges of the paper to create the different mountain ranges and again sponged on the purple. That's how they look to me in real life. The card base is the darker blue. I then added the twine, adding more of the color with my ink pad to the blue one. A simple one layer card. I hope you like it. Thanks so much for stopping by! Now hop on over to see what the other designers came up with.
