Carousel Horses

Hi there everybody.  I decided to make a card for a couple of challenges and got out this Crafty Individuals Stamp called Happy Days Hooray with these beautiful carousel horses which remind me of rides on the carousel when the local fair visited...a long time ago now..lol.  The Less is More Challenge theme is In a Row, and Colour Hues Challenge is to use Red and Pink.

I started by stamping the horse using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink three time on to a strip of card.  I started more or less in the centre with the first and then spaced the one either side.  The stamp is bigger but had to miss the top bit off to make it a CAS card.  I then coloured the horses using my set of Derwent Inktense Pencils taking the colour from the tip and painting with a waterbrush which I find makes the colour more controllable.  I used a Poppy Red and Fuschia and a bit of Charcoal Grey on the horses.  I finished by matting it on to black card and added a sentiment again using the Nocturne Ink heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope to see you again soon.

  2. Great use of colour Pat, the red and pinks are so soft yet still draw the eye into the scene. I am pleased it's not just me who takes colour from the tip of the pencil, I know the colourists say you should not do that but as you say it gives far more control.

    Many thanks for joining in our 'Four Legged Friends' theme at Allsorts challenge this week.

  13. I think this is beautiful, Pat! You brought back memories of many trips to a wonderful carousel in the woods we used to visit when Dan was young. In fact, taking him for his first ride was also my first ride and I was all grown up! (Well, you know, not mentally!) I love the design and how you added the color. That's my favorite way to use wc pencils, too. Take care and keep safe! Hugs, Darnell
