Inspiration Wednesday - Faithful Friend

Happy Wednesday!  It's Kary here to share a project inspired by watching Black Beauty on tv a few days ago.  I had read the book as a young girl, and it brought back many fond memories watching the show. 

I started out with good intentions to capture the colouring on video, but things didn't go too well.. LOL!  You can tell I'm an amateur trying to use my iphone but the lighting was not the best, and in the end I gave up. Well, here's the end result...


The copic markers I used are:



Horse - E21, E23, E25, E27, E29

Dress - R32, R35, R37, R39

Skin - E50, E01, E13, R20

Hair - E97, E99, YR27, YR23

Grass - G40, G43, G94, G99

Ground - E21, E13

(A little tip - I always use brown ink when stamping images instead of black so that the lines are softer - my favourite is Memento Rich Cocoa)

I added some Distressed Ink Tea Dye along the edges of the image piece and adhere it on a black cardstock.  I really like adding a little black edge on the stamped image to draw the eye to the image.  Some dash lines with my white gel pen and a sun die-cut with a sequin centre finishes off the card :).


And, here's the beautiful stamp set I used... Phyllis Harris - Listen from the Heart

PH-1074A-LISTEN-FROM-THE-HEART

Have a great day!
