Pretty Ponies


I'm making more horse cards - this time for my sister's dressage trainer, who was the recipient of one of the sets of cards I made for my sister to give to her friends at Christmas. For many of them, I'm reusing old designs, with small changes, but I'm really happy with this one, which I have not done before. It's so simple to do, but it's quite pretty, I think!

I stamped the Starving Artistamps horse 3 times in versarmark and embossed in clear. Then I sponged a line of each colour of my Flannel Kaleidecolor inkpad to create the background.

I hope she likes rainbows as much as I do!

Wow! I love this stamp and the rainbow colours. Horses are so popular in my area, for mustering cattle, pony club, breeders etc.. Fabulous card :)

The rainbow really makes the horse silhouettes stand out. Kinda makes a person smile. :)

Ooh, this is just lovely, Ardyth, looks as though there's a wonderful sparkle about the rainbow ... almost magic! More ink to add to the wish list! Anita :)

Ardyth your rainbow is beautiful and those horses stand out perfectly like there are trotting through it.

From a real horse lover, this card is creative and clearly shows how majestic these animals are IRL! I love the colorful background behind the white horses! I'm so going to have to CASE this one :)

Beautiful card. Your rainbow is so pretty and those horses look like they are running.

Love how you didn't do a traditionally colored rainbow ... you always make things just a little off to be completely interesting and not predictable. Love. it.

Your sister's horsey people will be lovin' these cards. I LOVE the colors that you used. The horses likely have a bit of sheen from the Versamark, that I'm sure looks even more spectacular in real life.
