Cantering

I made this card for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge on Poetic Artistry. I used my home-made paisley stamp again with black ink, and coloured bits in white. The star is a chipboard one which I made red, then heat embossed with a mixture of platinum and black embossing powders, which gave a sort of pewter effect. The brown strip under the square is felt ribbon, and the red stars are the punched out bits of another felt ribbon I have.

I wrote the quote on vellum and stuck it to the sponged square, which is actually a mini card, held closed with magnets.

I got really inky fingers with this one, sponging each layer with different browns. Good fun!
