Well howdy friend! I hope you're having a great day! Today I'm playing along at The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog where they're looking for projects that are "Down on the Farm". I thought this sweet horse might be just right.
I started with the Fallish Borders from the Ink Blot Shop. stamped the image on white card stock and then colored the flowers and sun with Copic markers. I created a mask for the sun and then added distress ink softly along the edges of the design, getting as close to the flowers as I could.
I held my hand over the center of the design when I added a splatter of water and some watered down ink so that no splatters would hit the flowers.
Finally I cut the horse by hand and adhered it with adhesive foam tape for a little dimension. I want to call it a her because of those long eyelashes!
Gotta love those sunflowers in the fall.. they're one of the last ones to stay around here in the Midwest and even after they bloom I love to see the birds hanging upside down picking out the seeds. Enjoy the little things and have a great day!
