The new challenge is up over at Digital Tuesday and this week, the challenge is to decorate the inside of your cards. That was an easy one for me because I always decorate the inside, although I sometimes decorate the insides after I have taken a pic for my blog (normally because I am running late!) and I even when I have them decorated in time, I never really show pics of the inside. I always forget to take a pic.
Anyway, our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps and I used one of their images for my card.
I chose a sweet baby image called Boo Peeker- Rocking Horse, hence my title for this post :)
I have quite a few pics so you may want to grab a cuppa and get comfortable before reading the rest of this post!
No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't get good pics of this card and the colours don't look the same in real life.... they are softer than they show up here.
I coloured the cute image with Copics and a tiny touch of pink Promarker (list of colours are at the bottom of the post because I actually remembered to keep a list!!), then cut it out and matted with scalloped circle nesties.
I followed the sketch over at Charisma cardz, I used some more of the First Edition papers, they are just sooo pretty:)
The flowers are ones I found in my stash and a pretty crotchet one from Little Snippets which I added a button too.
Some ribbon from my stash and some lilac tulle which you can't really see but I cut some little bits and added them under the flowers.
I decorated both sides inside with the same papers, kinda following through from the sketch on the front. On the right, I used a little flower and some tulle strips and left a plain white panel to write on.
On the left, I just tied some more tulle around one of the panels :)
I just had to show a close up of the image because it's so sweet :)
Last photo (promise!! lol), a close up of the pretty flowers. I don't normally use flowers like these (the paper ones), and I was going to use some roses, but the only ones I have left in pink or lilac are large ones and I thought they looked a bit odd on this card, so I had a look in my stash and found a pack of these that had never been opened (think I got them from Barry's Mum's friend when she gave me a pile of stuff because she was moving to a smaller house and couldn't take all her crafty stash with her) and the colour was right, so I just used them. I do love WOC roses, but these are a nice change and my flower stash is rather low, so it means that I can what few roses I have left for a little bit longer lol.
Oh and before I forget, here the list of markers I used.
skin- E11, E00, E000 and R20 for cheeks
Horse- E25, E35, E31
Clothes and other bits of horse- V04, V01, V000, RV2, R000 and a tiny bit of Pink Carnation Promarker.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments. It really does mean a lot to me and I do read every comment, even though it may take me a while to publish them.
Hope to see some of you join in with this weeks challenge :)
