Horse Note Cards

This weekend I challenged myself. Firstly, I wanted to play around with some ink blending, secondly I wanted to use patterned paper and cardstock scraps only (except for card bases) and thirdly to keep my card layout simple. 

Below is the end result of the personal challenges I gave myself. 

I started by creating my ink blended backgrounds - I still need some practice on this but I'm pretty happy with how they came out. I added some scripty words with a word stamp and markers. One the last one I included some ink splats as well. Then I raided my stash of patterned paper and card stock and assembled my cards. Twine and leather lacing was added to two of them and then I stamped the sentiments and voila! The finished size of each card is 4x4. 
I haven't decided if I will give these as a gift set to someone or use them for myself, but I am quite happy with how they came out. I think I may just try doing some with flowers!
