Horsing Around

Current Challenge - Anything Goes
Hello and welcome back to my crafty space!  I have a guest design team project for ITD Creative Playground Challenges and have a special card to share with you.  My daughter loves horses so when I saw this image I knew I had to have it.  I colored, Christmas Horseshoe with Copic markers and cute it out with a Cut n Scan.  I mounted the image on a circle die popped  up on foam tape.  I added pine bough in the same olive green card that accents the plaid paper.  I added sheer ribbon that I colored with a dark blue marker to get the "right" color to accentuate the image and the poinsettias.  The sentiment was part of the digital stamp set, but I used barn door distress oxide to add a bit of color.  I am hoping my daughter and her hubby love the card as much as I do.  I'd love to know what you love about it too! 

When you have a second please check out Imagine That Stamps and see what inspires your next project.   I found a couple steampunk images that I love, and I don't have any in my stash.  That will be my next purchase!!

Products used:  white/cranberry/olive card stock, Christmas Lodge dsp, Fun Stamper's Journey Pine and cone die set, Sizzix dotted circle die set, copic markers, wink of stella, sheer ribbon, Distress Oxide ink barn door, Little Birdie Poinsettias
