PENNY BLACK MINDING SHELTY


One more from me today! This Challenge is from Arty Girlz Challenge - Challenge No. 51 "Home Inspiration". One of my loves in life is "Horses", I have grown up around horses and ridden them for many years, and collected China Horses since I was a little girl. So, my Home Inspiration is one of my favourite Royal Doulton China pieces, this Shetland Pony, and the image I have used is Penny Black's Minding Shelty. I would like to thank "Donna" from Donna's Doodles, for very kindly stamping this image for me, and sending it to me. THANKS DONNA!! Using my watercolour brushes, I have coloured the image in, and layered it up on a pale blue cardstock. The card was then simply finished off using a scrap of backing paper, and one flower in the corner. The edges of the card, and the image have been "swiped" with a Pale blue chalk eye stamp pad, to give the edges a softer look.
Thanks for visiting, and come back soon! Happy crafting x
