Dream Big

I have always been a fan of carousel horses, and I think Lauren Pope did a fabulous job illustrating this one in the Enjoy The Ride set from Flourishes.

I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. I colored with Tombow Markers using a damp paint brush to blend.

The sentiment is also included in the stamp set. I used Spellbinders Labels Four to cut and emboss, then added two clear Mini Rhinestones .

The designer paper is from the new Basic Grey Olivia 6 x 6 paper pad. The ribbon embellishment at the top is Ecru Vintage Pom Pom from Maya Road. I was playing with my new Distrezz-It-All tool, so you will notice that there are a lot of distressed edges. I used Tim Holtz Distsress Inks on the edges, and Clear Rhinestones to embellish.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope you have a marvelous Monday!

Stunning!!!! I love carousel horses also. Love the way you treated the top of the card. Makes it look like a close up of a real carousel! Love that Olivia paper too.
