My sister, a horse surgeon at Wisconsin Equine Clinic, asked me to make a set of horse-y cards for a friend of hers. I have quite a number of horse stamps and horse-y sentiments, but mostly I've used them to make sympathy cards for my sister to send to clients if a horse dies.
It was fun to try to think of more cheerful cards to make with these stamps, and I tried to use brighter colours than I normally do.
Here are the first four I made:
I think the last one is my favourite. I used distress inks direct to paper to create the horizon, then stamped the horses in Versafine Onyx. I love how it looks like the horses are dancing on a summer day!
Unfortunately, I don't remember where the stamps for the first and fourth card come from. I've had them for ages, they're unmounted and therefore don't have a name on them. I have to get better at tracking the manufacturers so I can share with you. I'll see if I can find them again - if you know, please leave me a comment!
The stamp on the second card is from Deadbeat Designs - they've got lots of great horse and Texas-themed stamps. I love the abstract feeling of it.
The stamp for the third one is from a clear set from Inkadinkado.
Thanks for stopping by today!
