another carousel horse!!

oh my, thank you for all the emails! Now, for those who emailed that are new to stamping - I hear ya!...there was a lot to the red carousel card...so here is a much, much easier card! there is no embossing or detail glue with glitter or sponging on this one...just coloring, cut out and matting with nestie!!! all the glitter is done with stickles....boy do I love that stuff!!! the addiction in me for this craft has  forced me to always have stickles in every color they have..I have a whole drawer that holds nothing but all my bottles!!!


Hopefully this one will inspire you to try one of Whimsy's carousel stamps...the coloring is done with Copics (highlights with white gel pen)...but I will do another one with SU water crayons or pencils - there were many requests to color with something other than Copics. I know, Copics are pricey!!! I actually got started with them by winning auctions on Ebay for used copics..sometimes people buy them and then dont like them!! amazing to me...but there you go!

Have a wonderfully blessed day....calling for snow here again....please no no no!!!

Details:
Stamp - from Whimsy Stamps "Cool Ride" by Crissy Armstrong
Paper: SU Taken with Teal and dp, white
Ink:  Memento Black, Vivid Aqua, SU Taken with Teal
Embellishment: stickles, dimensionals, clear glitter pen

Another beautiful carousel horse Linda, these are great. Know what you mean about Stickles, maybe we should start an 8-step programme LOL!

Hoping we don't get any more snow, it's hard work and tiresome...

Hi Linda,
Thank you so much for your prayers over the last few days. I'm a bit better now although I am still not right. Your thoughts were much appreciated.
Your card is fantastic. What a great image and you have made such a brilliant job with it.
Hugs,
