The card I am sharing with you all today is for my God-daughter, who, like her Aunty Christine, loves horses (only it is many a year since I last actually rode one!!!) I chose this fabulous animal drawn by CrimsonCaveDragon (aka Heather), who seems not so much of a wooden fair-ground ride, but a real-life equine with flowing locks & feathers (hairy bits at the top of the hoof) impaled by the turned pole of the carousel. Nearly every self-respecting carousel horse seems to be a dapple grey so I tried to oblige for this one too using my Promarkers. Not the easiest colour of horse to have chosen, mind you!!!! LOL.
The shaped mat for my image was created & cut using my Cameo & the next probably very obvious use of my cutter can be seen on the inside of the card where I have cut out my God-daughter's name. The font needed a little adaptation to get it to fit & weld into my rectangle where I wanted it & to do this I utilised the point-editing feature along with enlarging the heart in the centre of the 'o' & I also added a dot to the 'i' which isn't actually featured in the font I chose. I then popped some matching patterned paper behind the cut-work. The simple sentiment I created myself on the PC, recolouring my text to match the papers.
Thanks for visiting my blog today.
