Stampin' B's and others - Mustang

As hostess of the Stampin' B's Design Team this week, I asked that we make a masculine card using black, brown, and one color of your choice. Mine is gray.  I love this image and can think of a couple of horses lovers who would enjoy having this card.

My card is really simple. I love the houndstooth and think it is very masculine. I colored the horse with
a gray Copic and added a couple of black, corduroy buttons.

Hope you'll join us. If so, just link to the inlinkz tool here.

I'm entering these challenges:


EtsyInspired - Paula Art is the store from which we are to choose our inspiration. I love this beautiful, child's carousel horse wall art.

Wow, what a FABULOUS horse card, Benzi!! You gave us an awesome challenge this week. I wasn't sure I could pull off brown and black, but I found that they do look fabulous together. Your masculine card is wonderful in houndstooth!

I love your take on the challenge this week Brenda. That image is priceless. Love the houndstooth b/g dp and buttons. I think this was a great CAS card as it kept the awesome image the focal point. Great job and challenge. It forced me to make masculine cards I need to make. I had trouble commenting on the SB cards from last week. The blog wouldn't take it. I'll try what you said!
