I am nearly late to last week's Tea Party, but I simply had to make a card for little Arabella who is an honorary teapotter. Fun! This card also fits last week's Alphabet Challenge for the letter N for Navy. The horse image was stamped and colored with copic markers. Then I sponged around the image. The background is stamped repeadedly with a woodgrain stamp and a stamp-a-ma-jig. A white signo gel pen was used to add stitching to the "bandana" pieces, then they were run through a horseshoe embossing folder. I know the embossing is hard to see in this picture. This card will be making it's way to horse country in Kentucky with a big howdy for Arabella. I hope she likes this card. Thanks for looking today! ~Karen.

And a big howdy to you too, Karen! This card is amazing. I love that embossing folder you used, I haven't seen that one but it is fabulous. Your repeat wood stamping in the background is perfection, I thought it was a wonderful background stamp. And your horse is simply amazing. It doesn't look stamped to me and you have colored the horse to perfection. I'm sure Arabella will absolutely love this card!

That horse is spectacular. I couldn't even dream of colouring one so realistically. And the combination of the woodgrain and the embossed horseshoes makes a great background for it. Love layout, it really draws the eye into the horse panel.

What a wonderful card for a horse loving girl. Your copic coloring looks awesome and I love your design of the horseshoe embossed triangles and white gel pen stitching. Great sponging for the clouds. The woodgrain is amazing. I though that was all one stamp, but you said you used the stamp-a-ma-jig and it looks great.
