Well that's the first month of 2015 done and dusted and do you know what that means? Time for another fabulous ABC Challenge, and this time our challenge is C is for Cupid and we want to see all your lovely creations for Love/Romance/Valentines/Wedding/Engagement. We have two sponsors this challenge: Marianne Design & Stamp and Create.
For this challenge, I decided to do something a little different. I have some beautiful Marianne Design dies and wanted to use some of them in my creation. I have always loved horse and carriages, and they shout "Romance" at me, and I think they are perfect for this challenge. Rather than stick them on a card, I made a 3D carriage drawn by 2 matching horses. I think they are a fabulous background for this Don and Daisy image, too. Anyway, here is my creation for this challenge:
I stamped Don & Daisy Just Married onto Kryogen card stock and coloured them in with my copics. The colours I used are: C00, C0, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, BG0000, BG10, R24, R21, R20, E57, E55, E53, E51, E50, E0000, E000, E00, E11. Here is a closer look:
To make the carriage, I cut 8 carriages and glued 4 of them together for strength. This gave me the two sides of my carriage, I then cut a strip of card, made an ovalish shaped tube and glued one of the carriages to each end, to make it into a 3D carriage. To do the horses, I also glued 4 of each horse together. To get them to stand I used a toothpick behind the ribbon and a small punched heart under their hooves for a little more balance. I then decorated the horses and carriage with ribbon, brads, bling and flowers. I drew the bridles on the horses as it was a bit fiddly to make them with ribbon. Here is a closer look:
To make the tree in the background, I cut 4 trees using the die, folded them in half and glued them together so they stood up.
I hope you enjoyed my project. I'd love to see what creations you can make and enter in our ABC Challenge,
