Native American Spirit

Hello, today's card is a little different and definately one for the boys.

This card began as an A6 white hammered card blank.  I cut a mat from green mirror board slightly smaller than the main card base.  Next I cut some white card stock smaller than the green mat and stamped the corners using a stamp from Creative Expressions 'Native American Spirit' and aged mahogany distress ink.  Then I stamped the head dress image using the same stamp set using walnut stain distress ink.  I coloured the image using a green promarker and distress inks pine needles and walnut stain. The tassel on the head dress was coloured using cosmic shimmers 'olympic gold' pearl pva.  The animals at the bottom of the topper were stamped using iced spruce distress ink and the stamp came from the same stamp set.  The sentiment was stamped onto white card stock using pine needles distress ink and Polkadoodles 'sensational sentiments' stamp set.  This was then die cut using a die from Spellbinders back to basics tags.  I then took the tag out of the die and re-seated it and cut it again to get a hole in both ends of the tag.  Then I stamped the corner stamp on the sides of the tag.  The green mat and topper were adhered to the card base.  The sentiment was then also attached to the card.  In the tag holes I poured some cosmic shimmer 'olypmic gold' pva to fill them.
