2014 is the year of the horse - and the first thing I had to do was figure out how to feature a horse on this hanging. I didn't have any horse stamps or digi-images so I decided to make an image myself!
I drew quite an abstract representation of a horse!!! When I had marked out where all the swirls would be I drew over them with an embossing pen and sprinkled with UTEE. I then melted it and covered it with Old Gold Fresco paint.
Then I began to try to make it looked like tarnished metal so I dry bushed French Roast Fresco paint all over it then began to brush it with White Fire and Classic Gold Treasure Gold.
Now for the brights!!! I swiped some Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries DS over the craft mat, spritzed with water and then did some wrinkle free distress on some card. When I got it to how I wanted, I cut it to size and then began to tear around where the horse was. The torn edges were inked with Spiced Marmalade DI.
The word 'celebrate' was taken from the chit-chat stickers and inked with Spiced Marmalade, Festive Berries and Walnut Stain DI.
Aged Gold Frantage was added to the edges of the hanger
Roses were covered in Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries DS and so was some vellum strips that had Chinese symbols printed on them.
A die cut leaf was painted with Old Gold Fresco paint and then covered with crackle glaze and then French Roast Fresco paint was rubbed into the cracks.
When they were all stuck on the card I sprayed the whole thing lightly with Espresso Adirondack spray and then some Cosmic Gimmer mists in Ancient Copper and Tarnished Gold.
Some rusty wire was twisted into a loop so that it can be hung up
Hope you like it! Why not make something to celebrate a special occasion? Come on over to Try it on Tuesday to see what the rest of the team have made to inspire you!
Hope to see you soon!
