"Mare and Foal"

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

In my post "Something Other Than a Card" I was asked where they could buy Roses creations. She has and "Etsy" shop at HERE. You can go there if you are interested in her creation. She wishes to thank you for your support.

The card I am posting today would make a great card for you husband, father or any male friend.

I call the card "Mare and Foal". The stamp is from "Stampabilities" the stamp number is JR1029.

"Mare and Foal"

I did this one a little different. I cut out the scalloped oval first with the Spellbinder die. This made it easier to position the image where I wanted it. After the image was stamped and colored, I masked the mare and foal. The grass and trees, stamps from Stampscapes were stamped. I had one more thing to do before the masking was remove. I airbrushed in the sky and the grass using a piece of paper towel to give me separation. This card has a lot of detail in it, but is quit easy to make.

Now to finish up the card, I used a Copper Leaf Krylon pen to edge the image and the sentiment. The bottom of the card front was stamped in black ink using the tree stamp.

The colors used for this card were;
Horse; E13,E15,E18
Grass; YG09, YG45
Sky; B02

I hope you enjoy my creation. Your comments are always welcome and appreciated.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    Great card. I love to use my airbrush to color backgrounds. It gives such a soft look.
