Pink Horse Card for Festive Friday

Searching for a pink and pearled horse card? Guess what I created for this week’s Festive Friday Challenge: Mother’s Day and/or Pink!

horse cardNow you may be wondering how a horse card fits into Mother’s Day.   My mother loved horses.  In fact, we had 30 horses on the farm when I was growing up.   I actually showed horses from the time I was in elementary school through college.  I know my mother would have loved getting this card for Mother’s Day…and it is dedicated to her memory.

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

This beautiful horse was easy to watercolor. I used Aqua Painters and Balmy Blue, Basic Gray, Old Olive, and Smokey Slate inks. Using Shimmery White card stock adds visible sparkle.  Plus, I added more shimmer to the mane and tail with Clear Wink of Stella.
