Mardi Gras Horse
I'm a bit late posting my teapot challenge thanks to getting sick from the bug I nursed my hubby through last weekend. The phrase, share and share alike should not include "sickie bugs".
For this week's challenge, I dug out a stamp I've had in my stash for about 6years or so and makes a great party image. I love this carousel horse from Graphicstamp.
I started out by stamping it in memento tuxedo black and coloring with prismacolor markers before sponging Stampin Up! green galore around the sides and layering. Then I pulled out, and dusted off, Papertrey Ink's Damask Designs to make the background before popping up my carousel horse over some Michael's $1 ribbon.
Cute and simple and only took around 20minutes to make.
