I had some fun today making a postcard for the swap over at Roc Nicholas' FB page. The theme is Valentine's Day and I couldn't resist using 'Horse' again... It must be my favourite 'Roc stamp' !
This card started out as a piece of Gelli Print. First I cut it to size 6"x4" and used a heart die set to cut out one big and two small hearts. I chose a piece of design paper to put behind the hearts and to put my horses and sentiment on. Next I stamped Horse; once in it's original form and once I masked off the hat, stamped it on a piece of blank rubber (a piece cut off a set of unmounted stamps) and then stamped the blank rubber on my paper and voila : a reversed image...
Next I coloured them both using Copic markers. I gave the grey version a bow and eyelashes to change him into a her... I then stamped Heart Vine on the gelli print and coloured in the hearts and the stems with coloured pencils. I also used coloured pencils and some Gamsol to add the shading around the hearts and around the edges. Lastly it was a case of putting it all together.. I glued the horses behind the gelliprint and then adhered the whole thing on the pattern paper. Next I added the sentiment which are Tim Holtz ChitChat stickers and doodled around them..
I then added a piece of white card stock on the back of the card and that finished it off.
Thank you so much for stopping by today !
