3. Place the horse mask over the horse image on the watercolor paper. Stamp the Flag Background over top of the mask. Let the ink dry; then remove the mask.
4. Color the image using watercolor pencils and water brush. Color heavily over the horse to create a silhouette effect.
5. Stamp Freedom onto a small piece of watercolor paper (approx.. 7/8 x 4 ) using Staz On ink. Let the ink dry then watercolor the word.
6. Layer the word onto a piece of black cardstock using Tearific Tape to attach. Trim to form a small border.
7. Form an A6 card (4 x 6 folded) from black cardstock. Attach the horse/flag image onto the card using Tearific Tape.
8. Attach the saying just slightly off the edge of the top of the card use dimensional tape to attach. (You will need an A7 or other larger envelope to put this card in because of overhang on the saying piece or you may choose to put the saying completely on the card without the overhang and use a standard A6 envelope).
