Carousel Horses by Debbie

This card is from the new stamps set Carousel Horses.


When I recieve new stamps for samples I usually stamp them with black ink and have them sitting on the work top in my craft room. I make notes and jot down any ideas I have. I couldn't wait and started applying colour immediately. This horse is stamped with black ink and embossed with clear powder. I coloured with Copic pens. Starting with light shades and adding colour for shading.


The backing was made by stamping and embossing with silver powder so not to take away the focus from the main image. I distressed with Tumbled Glass and Spun Sugar. A couple of ribbon strands attatched with a brad to finish it off.


When I stamped the horses I fell in love with them. They reminded me of a past holiday in Euro Disney with the family.


This is one of five horses and there is a length of fabulous bunting on the stamp plate.  Click on the image for a close up.

  5. This is such a different stamp set & it's exciting to see a sample using it. Love the ice cream background & the really stunning horse. The ribbon embellishment really picks up on the carousel pole decorations effectively.
