Anthony on his Hobby Horse


Todays card is yet another of Mo Mannings gorgeous digi stamps, and again I have coloured it with my copic pens. Ive then cut it out with my rotatrim and distressed the edges with some blue catseye inkpad, then mounted it onto blue pearlescent card.

The base card is my usual 8"x 8" white card and for the first layer I have used another piece of the same colour blue pearlescent card and some papers that I printed from the Sue Bottles Country Classic's Cds, its a cd that I bought on Ebay, and she has some really lovely papers on several of her cds. Ive used three of her patterns for this card, and the first one is a dark blue check one, the second layer is a white background and blue star pattern on, and the last one is pale blue paper with white starts on. Over these three mounts I have stuck a blue gingham ribbon and attached it to the back of the base layer.

On top of this I have stuck my image onto the base card with foam tape, and also stamped a greeting onto another piece of white card and layered it up with the same pale blue card, this was then stuck to the left hand side at the top with some foam tape. To finish of I have stuck some cowboy boots and saddle to the left hand bottom side and a couple of Sheriff badges at the top on the right.

Beautiful work Shirley. Keep up the great work.
So sorry about the Fairy fingers. I sent one to Spain last week no problems. Send one close to home and the Postie tried to kill her eh? LOl.
