SPS - Chincoteague

Sweet Pea Stamps

Today is my day to showcase an image from Sweet Pea Stamps and I have chosen to work with the beautiful rubber stamp Chincoteague by Julia Burgess which is available from the Sweet Pea Store.

I decided to challenge myself with this image by colouring it with one black crayon (Faber Castell Polychromos) - what fun I had :) :) :) In keeping with the image I then followed through in my planning with an all black and white card.  To begin with I designed some horse shoe paper to use as my backing paper, this I mounted on black card.
 Next I designed some horseshoes and cut them with my die cutter.  I used black vinyl on thick white card to make them sturdy.
 Here is the coloured image
 While in the UK a while ago and rumaging through second hand shops in their button boxes I found this wonderful bit - instant love and had to have hahahaha.
 I coloured the bit with black Promarker and then added some ultra fine black glitter.
 To finish of two small black gingham bows to cover up how I have attached the horse bit to the card.
