Horses by Laura Drahozal
- The base card is 8 ½” X 5 ½” with a top fold.
- Lightly color the blue card stock with the blue and gray pencils, gliding gently over the texture to create a "denim" look.
- Use the removable tape to tape the stencil face up on the blue card stock. Tape all the way around.
- Pick up some embossing paste on the back of your palette knife.
- Place the blade of the palette knife on on the left side of the stencil, with the back, holding the paste, facing the open parts of the stencil.
- Pull the knife gently across the stencil, treating it like a squeegee and filling all the holes of the stenicl.
- Put the remaining paste back into the container.
- Carefully remove the stencil, and let the pasted image dry thoroughly.
- Stamp white cardstock using the Memento ink.
- Color the image using colored pencils.
- Cut the wood image and mount on dark brown card stock, leaving room for the horses and a mat edge.
- When the paste is completely dry, color the horses with the Spectrum Markers.
- "Distress" all the edges using the ink, ink blender and craft sheet.
- Assemble the rest of the card, using the May Arts twine to create knots on the front for added interest.
