TIO # 91 - It's a Horses Life

TIO #91 - It's a Horses Life

This week over on the TIO challenge, the theme is "It's a Horses Life" and it is set by my fellow design team buddy, Zoe.

I was able to use a set of stamps I bought a couple of weeks ago at a Craft Fair in Wrexham, from Stamp Addicts, Gypsy Caravan No 2, and Rural Scenery.

My background was created by swiping distress stains, broken china, spun sugar, peeled paint and wild honey across the tag, then dabbing with a wet wipe. I then edged with distress inks - tumbled glass and vintage photo.

I stamped the images in the rear with distress inks, shabby shutters and peeled paint. the main images have been stamped with sepia and black archival.

I have added a bit of shading to the main images with polycolour pencils.

Right, that's it. Short and sweet!

Below is another I made first. using the same tools but landscape this time. I decided it was a bit too busy so chose the one above as my design team entry.

Bye for now. Thanks for dropping by. I always look forward to reading your comments.

  6. Both tags are gorgeous, Wanda. You do such a great job of coloring these images. I also prefer the upper one because of its simplicity.

  7. Hi Wanda, these horse tags are so beautiful and so creative. I love them both.
