Sketch Challenge Time Again!

It is fun to see just how versatile a sketch can be when you play around with it! I love using split card backgrounds so I knew I'd love the sketch from splitcoaststampers today!
For my first card, I went in a masculine direction when I saw this dp on my desk. I cut my piece then cut it in half and flipped one side over. I added some recycled chunky twine across the join. I used the repeated stamping technique to make it look like my horse is running across the card by stamping it full strength on the right hand side of the panel then stamping 3 more times without reinking for the effect. I embossed my sentiment in Early Espresso ep and sponged the edges in Soft Suede
