For my card I have used the gorgeous new carousel horse image – Carousel Dreams. I have a thing for carousel horses, and this one is no exception! Absolutely love it, and am thrilled with the way it looks all coloured up.
I went with something slightly different for this card. I think I was channeling Rowena, going for the whole distressed vintage style. Hopefully I pulled it off! I stamped the gorgeous Carousel Dreams on a light Kraft cardstock, and then coloured with Copics. The Kraft cardstock I used is nice and smooth, so colouring went without a hitch, and I love the way the colours turned out. I think I’ll be doing this again in the future!
The details on the horse have been accented with a clear glitter pen. Around the image layer, I have added some pearls using the Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Cream (also available in the UK at Quixotic Paperie). Love how easy these Viva pens are to use, and how well the pearls turn out!
Papers are Fancy Pants Roadshow available at Quixotic Paperie. The lace is from Prima and is also available at Quixotic Paperie. I distressed the edges of the papers with Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap.
