This is a LO of my sister (using Lets Scrap sketch 7-13-11), and incorporating 'stitching by pen' so am entering this in 2 Lets Scrap challenges. The circle is meant to represent the ring on the bridle, hence the 'leather straps' coming off it. Close ups of the paper-pieced horse from Marina du Plessis' first book, and the journalling can again be seen below. I think if you click on the image it will enlarge a little?
The horse was made by cutting a grey background and a white foreground. I then embossed the white piece with 'Entangle", one of the new Couture Creations folders now available in South Africa. The edges were shaded with brown chalk, and eye was drawn in. The hair amd hoof highlights were drawn in with a silver gel pen.
Bo Bunny paper "Shappy Press", MS vine punch, silver paper, all other paper from stash, Creations Couture embossing folder, silver gel pen, brown and rust coloured chalks, and lots of patience!
Would love your comments!
