This card is for my youngest daughter who is turning 6 very soon. It’s sad really ……… she’s growing up way too fast!
I used 2 challenges for this card. SUO challenges has a birthday card challenge and The Paper Players has another great sketch challenge this week.
This is actually my daughter’s stamp set. She asked for it for Christmas and has played with it quite a bit, making cards for friends and just making pictures to stick on the fridge. I have not made anything with it before though, this is my first attempt.
The wings in this set are separate. I stamped and watercoloured the horse and coloured and cut the wings out and then tried to position the wings nicely. You could just stick them onto the horses back (which is what kids would do if they were making a card) and that looks okay but I decided to use a knife and cut just above the horses back and along the mane a little and then slide the wing into the slot and behind the horse. This worked really well and looked a lot better I think. I also put dimensionals under the wing at the top so it is very 3D. I also used the 2 way glue pen and dazzling diamonds to glitter the hooves and the wing and its all done on shimmery white so very sparkly! The star border is done by using the classic stars wheel with versamark on shimmery white card, embossing with white and then sponging pip, baja and plum over it.
