do you have a horse?

Do you have a horse? Do you go horse riding? I don't do either, but I like horses. Do you have any horse stamps? That, I do have so I thought I would make a card with one of the horse stamps I do have. On this card, both images are available from I uploaded this card on Amy's Blog, but thought I would also put it here, since it is my card.

Here is how I did it: I stamped the horse head on white cardstock and then I colored it in with a few copic markers. The colors I used were E02, E33, E35, R02, YR00, and 0 the colorless blender. I am new using these markers and the more I use them, the more I am liking them, though I don't have many. After getting the horse colored the way I wanted it, I used a circle scalloped nestabilites die and cut out the image and while the paper was still in the die, I used a duster with some blue ink and went around the image, thus leaving the edge white. I then used a circle nestabilities die and cut the black layer out. I stamped the horseshoe image out twice and cut them out. I colored them in with a silver glitter pen (though you can't see that very well in the scan). I layered the images on a light brown layer, which is 3 3/4 by 5 which I used the Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folder on. I really like how the card turned out and I hope you do to. I can think of many people who would enjoy getting a card like this? Can you?

I hope you and your family have a fun and safe Labor Day week-end and I also hope you take some time to do a little creating.

hugs and Prayers,


  1. I don't have a horse but I do like them. :)
    Your card came out really nice.

  2. I don't have a horse, but I have some stamps now that my son is at the Univ. of Wyoming...Go Cowpokes! You did a great job coloring, especially since you haven't had the Copics very long. Great card!
