Black Beauty

Today's super fun Ways To Use It challenge we are making our own stamps.WT618 - Make a Stamp

So my barbed wire came out great and worked like a charm and I got three great stamps out of it. I was going to do the entire panel and a setting sun BG but I had to set it aside for a bit. When I got back to it I found that one of my sweet fur babies had taken off with it. One might think with the bright green foam I used I could find where they hid it but I have looked high and low and that stamp is no where to be found. So I used part of it in the upper left corner and have another piece left over for another card. My girls love to play with foam. Just goes to show why I have to keep my craft room closed. LOL!

Die cut barbed wire on foam and stamped with Versamark on white and heat embossed with copper. Added a sunset color by sponging yellow, coral, light blue, dark blue and purple to the barbed wire panel. Embossed the white panel with stars. Stamped the horse and colored with copics then mounted on dimensionals on the black. Finished off with some twine and a button.

Horse Stamp used is Inkadinkado. Darcie Star Embossing folder used on the panel.

Copics used:  C1, C3, C5, C7, G12 & G14

  1. Your coloring of the horse is amazing and the barbed wire embossed in copper is so pretty against the inked background.

    1. Thank you Ann. I had hoped to do the entire BG with the sunset and barbed wire but alas those fun fur babies took off with my stamp. I have a feeling I am going to find it all torn up once I do find it. LOL!
