A note to say...

I was asked to make a card for a lady's friend who is having a bit of a hard time at the moment. I have previously made a birthday card for this same lady so I know she likes horses, and the lady who requested the card spotted the card I made last week with Charlotte's horse from Whiff of Joy and asked that I use that image again. God, that sounds more complicated than it actually is. 

I am really enjoying the monochromatic look at the moment, so I used this again - picking out a blue to add a dash of colour.

Image: Charlotte's Horse from Whiff of Joy, coloured with promarkers: warm grey 1-5, blue pearl, cornflower
Papermania colossal paper in blue
swirls cut from whitewash core'dinations card with sizzix flower and vine die in the cuttlebug
blue whitewash core'dinations card was run through the cuttlebug with the paisley embossing folder and sanded - and a blue Anita's wide organza ribbon wrapped around it.
The greeting is CCSR sentiment stamp
deep blue/purple core'dinations card for matting and layering image and greeting
papermania black brads from embellishement trio
And here's his close-up...

Lovley card, great job with colouring the horse!

Anne said...

Oh I love this! I have horses and this is one of the few "cute" horses stamps that's also appealing because it's anatomically correct :)

Great colours too, do you put the white highlights on afterwards?
