It was our beautiful grand-daughter, Beth's 10th birthday on Tuesday, so I made this card for her using Magnolia stamps. She's keen on horse-riding, and is a delightful, gentle child, loved by everyone who knows her.
I found the Kanban background card in Hobbycraft (25% off too, which was a bonus!). I cut out all the stamped images, adding a few punched flowers too with pearl centres. Colouring the image always takes time, but adding the cutting out made it twice as long!! Plain cardstock is Coredinations from A Maze of Memories.
The stamps are Tilda's Brunte horse; Tilda with halter; and gate with flowers, which I got from the lovely people at Sir Stampalot, who are very efficient and always have quick delivery times. I coloured the stamping with copic markers from Wendy at Stamps and Memories, and put everything onto little foam stickers - only 1mm though as I didn't want everything to stick out too much. I'm not sure that the perspective's quite right, as the figures don't look grounded, but as my husband says: "these little people have no noses or mouths - why are you worried about perspective?"
Did you notice there's no glitter on this card? I need to go and lie down in a darkened room I think: I must be sickening for something!
Thanks so much for reading my blog. I'll be away for a week, and then busy with Regional Finals, so won't be doing much blogging. Please leave me a comment and I'll come and visit when I've got a moment.
