More Horse Cards - Day 2



I'm in Wisconsin this weekend, on my annual trip to visit my sister, so this post is scheduled. Here are two more cards I made for my sister to give to her friends.

I'm sorry, but I have no idea who makes this horse stamp. (ETA - Lura has helped me out (Thank you so much, Lura!)- these stamps are Wild Horse Canyon stamps - I have two sizes, but I could not tell you if they are large and medium, or medium and small.) (the horse I used on the first card is bigger than the one on the second).

While I was making the first card with the 'herd', I realized that this horse made me think of the Longchamp logo, and that inspired me to make the second.

I used Marina Mist, Baja Breeze, London Fog and Sahara Sand on the first card, matted the image panel on Marina Mist and a Soft Stone card base.

For the second card, I used Versafine Onyx ink and clear embossing powder (Waltzingmouse sentiment) and then used Kaleidecolor Spectrum ink with Papertrey's Super Stripes to add a pop of colour.

I hope you have a fantastic time with your sister. These cards are just super. I do like this stamp - a beautifully stylized horse. I think the first card with the herd is my favourite - love it!

This horse stamp is really neat! A bit of 'cave art' and modern mixed together! Love the colors that you used on the 'herd' card. Perfectly placed sentiment!

Oh my, the blue part of your line is absolutely perfect for your sentiment ... what great movement and focus on your card!

Just love what you did with this stamp Ardyth! Especially the colors. And for a change, I can supply you with some information on this stamp. First saw it several years ago in the Cre8it magazine. Called Wild Horse Canyon and you can get the stamps (and some other really cool ones) at: http://www.dotcalmvillage.net/category/Wild-Horse-Canyon-42 Hope this is useful.
