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.
