Down-home Wisdom

As soon as I saw this fun Donkey Mail digital stamp by Ike's Art, I knew I had to make a card featuring one of my dad's favorite "from the farm" quotes: "Why are there more horse's asses than there are horses?"!

I colored the Ike's Art image with Copic markers & covered much of it with brown flocking. I inked the patterned patterned paper for the different layers. The middle portion was made with Memory Box dies and ink sponging. The horse rubber stamp was stamped in gray Memento ink, colored with a green Copic, and textured with alcohol. I made the sentiment with the CrimeFighter BB font.

Coincidentally, a Facebook Friend shared this similar joke today: "All people have the right to be asses but some abuse that privilege"!
