CTS6 - Another Horse Card
Yes, I'm still slowly churning out the horse cards I'm making for my sister. For this one, I was inspired by this week's layout for CAS(E) This Sketch (again!).
I have to admit when I first looked at this sketch, I got stuck on what's actually there. This happens to me with most sketch challenges. It takes me a while to look beyond (in this case) the big flowers, and make it my own. Quite often when I'm stuck, I try to either (or both!) minimize the elements, or make it one layer. Changing shapes is another option. But I try to stay true to the sketch - here, I made the main image smaller, changed the shape and took the sentiment out of the main image, but I think (hope!) it's still recognizable as the original sketch.
The stamp is Inkadinkado, the colours are London Fog and Midnight Muse.
