Another Carousel Birthday
January 05, 2017
Hold your horses! Can you believe I've posted to my blog 2 days in a row? Actually, I've got a pretty full month of projects to share so make sure you hit that little subscribe button. I don't want you to miss anything!
I'm still trying to catch up on the birthday cards and this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches inspired me to keep it quick & simple. Since I still had the Carousel Birthday stamp set on my desk, it was an easy choice to decide what to use.
I started by stamping the carousel horse image and sentiment in Basic Black archival ink onto Very Vanilla card stock. To add some color to the horse, I scribbled some watercolor pencils in Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, and Calypso Coral over the image. Next, I used a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to blend the color and soften the lines. This gave the image a watercolor look and a tiny bit of shimmer.
I completed the card by adding the Bermuda Bay-stamped "birthday" over the sentiment, some Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper along the edge, and a few embellishments (ribbon & paper bow) from the coordinating embellishment kit.
You'll find the complete list of supplies below.
