I was commissined to do this card for a friends friends Grandaughter ! I didn`t have much of a brief to go on just that the recipient was turning 18 and that she was horse mad. Unfortunately this is the only stamp I have with a horse on it but it is a favourite of mine from LOTV. Hopefully it will be well received. I`ve coloured with distress inks and used a bit of glossy accents on the apples and the horses eye, don`t think it shows up well in the photo... In fact the photo isn`t the best I`ve ever taken but it is VERY overcast here ( the sky is full of snow methinks !) so I was running around the house trying to get the best light to take this.
In the end I layed it on my bed and took the photo from above as there are two windows in my bedroom giving the best light I was going to get today !! (hence the rumpled linen look around the edge of the piccie !)
I`ve used backing papers from Card Creations - pink gingham and Melissa Frances - Nancy. Cheery lynn die ( my new one that I cannot stop using ) and Marianne creatables dies for the little flowers.
The large flower was made by using the Tim Holtz tattered flowers die cutting four of the medium and four of the smallest flowers on the die, spritzing them with a bit of water just enough the dampen the paper and soften the fibres, screwing them up and carefully unfolding them again and layering together with a pearly brad to hold them in place in the middle.
It`s been qutie a while since somebody has commissioned me to make a card for them and I enjoyed making this one.
I`m off now to catch up on the ironing I should have done yesterday but I went to Stamperama instead !LOL (I`d rather be crafting) bye for now xx
Ooh I forgot to mention that I printed the sentiment out on my computer using Riva LET font and nesties ovals to frame it and the "18" numbers were cut out of Kanban glitter card using Caligraphy Cricut 2" Gratitude font.
