My horse card for my first challenge

I was looking at some other blogs and found that this week Charisma Cardz was having a challenge all about Animals. This gave me the incentive to finish a card using my Magnolia stamps Tilda's Brunte and Tilda with Halter. 

Years ago I used to compete in one day eventing on a beautiful big brown thoroughbred gelding. I have always loved horses, so when I saw this stamp, I just had to have it. Brunte has a cheeky look to his face, and I think he would be fun to ride...if he were real of course. I stamped Tilda first and masked her before stamping Brunte.

I didn't have a grass, tree or fence stamp, so I cut the shapes out using my CraftRobo cutter and then coloured in the card with Copic markers. I didn't blend too much as I wanted to give a textured appearance. Here is a closeup of the card, this time taken with a flash.

The images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express Card and coloured with Copic Sketch (and Ciao) Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: Y26, Y23, Y21 clothes: E50, E51, E53, B24, B26, B29, 100, C9, C7, C5, C3 halter: C2, C3, E59, E57, E55     horse: E59, E57, E55, E29, E51100, C9, C7, C5, C3, C2  grass: YG93, YG25, YG23 tree: E53, E55, C3 fence: E57, E59, E29.


Stamps: Magnolia Tilda with halter, Tilda's Brunte, SU Chalk Talk For You
Paper: floral scrapbooking paper
