Whimsy Carousel Horse: Cool Ride

blue and white afront


I was so happy to be able to create a card today with my "Cool Ride" stamp set I drew for Whimsy. I think it's one of my personal fav's so far. Plus I am also excited to enter it into three challenges today!


1) Stamp Something challenge this week is a colour scheme: blue and white.
2) Everybody Art challenge is "snowflakes"
and
3) Fussy and Fancy challenge is "winter"
I think I hit all three themes with this one card all right! ;-)


blue and white


I coloured Cool Ride with the following Copics:
B24, 28, 41, 45 91, 93, 95 ,97
BV23, 31
E11, 13, 15, 17, 42, 74,
C0, 2
YR000, 20
blender pen


See the post below this one for tips on how I do the dotty background.
I made the two blue patterned papers myself using the two accessory stamps that come in the set. I stamped the snow swirl around the outer edges of the main panel in Memento Summer Sky ink. I stamped the snowflake accessory with Whisper White onto the royal blue card stock. For the light blue panel, I stamped both accessory images onto white card stock in Versamark Clear, embossed in clear powder, then sponged it up with Summer Sky. Afterwards I removed the embossing using an iron and copy paper.
Many thanks to Yvonne, who inspires me to make more beautiful cards!
Hope you are having a great weekend! Enjoy it while it lasts!
God bless you, thank you for coming by for a visit!

  30. Hi Crissy! How nice of you to stop by and visit my blog the other day! It is my turn to visit you today. It has been a while since I was here last but all I could think was WOW! Some gorgeous things here! Besides your awesome coloring, I love your backgrounds you put behind your images (little dots behind the fairy, the pink and yellow behind the Copic fur bunny). Great inspiration for a girl like me who gets stuck on plain blue skies! Thanks!
