It was my dads birthday yesterday and it was a big one – 60th! So I had to make him the perfect card. He loves westerns so the Waltzing Mouse Stamps set Back in the Saddle was just perfect for it! I inked up some pre-embossed woodgrain card stock to look like old weathered wood. Lots of kraft and brown happened then too. I got the ombre effect with my inks by stamping the left most horse and rider 5 times in the same ink. Then 4 times the next time, then 3, then 2 for the lightest one. Its a fun way to get more use from one ink pad. I inked up the stars from Scrapfellow and added crackle paint over the top.
The gun charm was perfect for on it too….
He loved it which was the main thing really 🙂
Thanks for stopping by today!
