Bienvenue Lyly! She's a real cutie from the photos! This card was made with a deadline - my husband is hand-delivering it to Montreal tonight!
This little rocking horse is a Martha Stewart sticker I bought over a year ago. It was quite the challenge to find coordinating paper. But I dominated that challenge!
This is one of the new Spellbinders die sets, Radiant Rectangles. I knew as soon as I saw it that this set would be very useful because it is rectangles and ovals. Not only that, it's incredibly versatile.
The lettering was done with Mitchell Roundhand Nibs, sizes 1-1/2, 3-1/2 and 6 using a mixture of Schmincke Gouaches, White, Paris Blue and Chromium Oxide Green on Arches Text Wove paper. The little heart was made with a Gel Extreme. Between finding the right paper and mixing the gouache to match, this card took quite a few hours and even then, you can see I didn't have the flow of the gouache optimized.
My French is so rusty that I had to Google the correct spelling. (but I was right before I checked. All hope is not lost.) This lettering was done with a Zig marker. Mostly because it is instantly dry and I didn't have to worry about wrecking the card at this point!
Thanks for visiting! Suzanne
