Happy Graduation- A Horse with a Musical Background :-)
I wanted to create a card for a special young lady that is graduating this year (hopefully I will not spoil the surprise- I do not believe she checks my blog :-)). She loves horses and music so I decided to combine the two and use the colors from this week’s CQC190 ColourQChallenge along with the SR177 Sketch from Stampin’ Royalty.
Again, if you have the time, check out both sites- great inspiration from the Design Teams and other entries!
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of a piece of Really Rust DSP and a piece of Baja Breeze cardstock with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Lightly sand the DSP to show the white core and layer the DSP onto the Midnight Muse cardstock layer.
Layer the embossed Baja Breeze cardstock onto Midnight Muse as well as the other two DSP layers for the sketch.
Ink the horse image from Horse Frontier and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock. Color using Watercolor Pencils and create a mask from copier paper. Ink the background stamp, Musical Score (retired) with Midnight Muse Classic Ink and stamp off a few times before masking the horse image and stamping over the horse.
Cut the horse out with a Circle Cutter or Circle Framelits™. Lightly sponge Baja Breeze Classic Ink over the edges and background. Mount onto a Midnight Muse cardstock circle and add the partial Tea Lace Paper Doily.
Adhere the layers, add the 5/8” Rust Satin Ribbon layers along with the sentiment and rolled flowers.
