For my “more” card using the same mustang images, I started out the same…stamped it with Versafine onto water color paper and used water soluble graphite, a couple of water brushes & to add more color, I also added a combination of Distress reinkers in spun sugar & tattered rose.. I die cut with an oval die, edged it w/ black & matted it on a larger oval of a peachy/pink designer paper. The rope corner was stamped, colored the same way and die cut w/ a large square. The black print and larger pink layer were also die cut before being attached to my 4.25 x 5.50 card front. A multi tag punch was used to punch out the tag from a leftover piece of the colored water color paper and the greeting was stamped on top. A section of fussy cut piece of the rope corner and a black mini brad were added w/ the tag.

Here is my “simple” version from 8/6.Mustang Portrait 04276
