Create4Fun challenge

Our sketch on Create4Fun challenge is another done by me.  I don’t think it really worked with the image I decided to use but I was itching to ink up this beautiful Cool Ride & Accessories stamp by Whimsy Stamps. So I tweaked again, no surprise there then.

whimsy-winter-carousel 

The photo’s are not the best, I had to resort to the light box again, it has been so dark here these past few days.  Don't you just hate it when it's still dark at 9am :(

I used the swirl accessory stamp and stamped around the edge of the image then dotted Stickles all over the show.  Even the horse’s tail and mane got a good dose of the old Stickles lol.  I used Fun Flock for the fur on the cape (is that what you call it??) and the hood.

I used one of the gorgeous rhinestone ribbon sliders and the rhinestone buttons from the Hobby House (just love the sparkle on these) and punched out a couple of snowflakes with a Martha Stewart punch and dolloped Stickles on those too (I’m addicted, can’t you tell lol)

The image was coloured with Copics and I even remembered to make a note of the colours used this time.

Horse and pole: C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9
Cape: B0000, B00, B02, BG05

This card also fits:
Stamp Something challenge which is a Blue and White Colour combo
Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge which is Winter this week
Challenge up your life challenge which is ice and snow
Saturday Spotlight challenge which is snowflakes

Thanks for stopping by,
