Horsing Around

Happy Friday!!

Today I wanted to share a card I made recently for Morgan's Mom (for her b-day).


I started off by stamping the horse (Deep Red Stamps) using Pinecone VersaFine Clair ink as well as a second imagine on scrap paper - this will be my mask for the rest of the stamping/inking.  I positioned the mask over the horse then stamped the large trees (Deep Red Stamps).  I tore a piece of scrap paper and used it to create the hill behind the horse as well as the dirt path that the horse is running on. I wanted to play with my stipple brush so that's what I applied most of the color with on the path, grass, sky an the large trees in the background.  

I then stamped all of the foliage, pine trees, and flowers (all Rubber Stamp Tapestry stamps).  Next I watercolored the horse using Memento inks and a waterbrush.  I added a few white gel pen highlights to the hooves and some ink around the edge to really make it all pop.

I mounted it on a green card base and stamped a sentiment inside to finish the card off.

Hope you all have a wonderfully inky weekend!!
