Western Birthday Scene
My head cold is clearing up and I am feeling better. Good thing because we have a busy weekend coming up.
sketch challenge #378 on Splitcoaststampers. Korin is our hostess and she provided a great layout for us.
I turned the sketch on its side to accommodate my image.
The image is from a newly released set from Marks Finest Papers- wildhorses. I colored it with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. The horse I stamped on soft suede cardstock and did some fussy cutting and layered it on my card for a little dimension.
My background designer paper is from 7 gypsies. There is a little green shading on some of the diamonds so I used always artichoke cardstock & designer paper for one of my layers. Used the Stampin-Up square lattice embossing folder here.
On the black middle layer I used the cuttlebug embossing folder "diamonds in the rough". Stamped my happy birthday sentiment to complete my card.
well it's late and time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day. So until next time.......God bless.
Some other challenges:
1. Creative Belli has a 3 shapes challenge. I have diamonds-an oval- and a rectangle. Designer paper is a few years old.
2. Divas By Design has a stamp something challenge.
3. Little Darlings has an "outside" challenge. They want to see our creations of things in the outdoors.
4. Top Tip Tuesday has an animal challenge.
