This is for WT464 Challenge to use a horse on our project. I dug deep and dusted off my SU Bronc Buster set. It's been a very long time since I have done a project like this and I had lots of fun. My fingers are very inky as I inked up Kraft cardstock, wiped it with a baby wipe to spread the ink, cut it into thin strips and braided it into the leather reins while it was still damp. The dampness softened the strips so it was easy to work with. This is definitely a guy card and was really fun to do.

Into my favourites, Kitty - this is beautiful in every detail. I thought, from just looking at it, that you must have plaited the reins from paper. Thanks for the tip on the ink making the paper strips soft enough.
