Sampler Edition # 5
by Elisabeth Bell
Happy Friday Everyone.....I hope you are enjoying your time on our Blog Hop! If you are here from Judy's Blog then you are in the right spot! If not, please head over to Suzanne's Blog so that you can start the hop from the beginning....trust me you don't wanna miss a stop on this hop! We, at SCACD, are VERY excited to have the wonderful DT of Quixotic Paperie, AND the amazing Susanna Boyd of Papercraft Planet joining us today! Now let's continue on the hop......here's my project....
Carousel Dreams from this brand new Sampler Edition #5 by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD! The moment I saw this horsey I immediately thought of riding on the Merry-Go-Round....I still love riding that ride! Then the hunt was on to try and find a template to make the vision in my head become a reality....I did find one template but it was vague and I really didn't want to pay over $10 for it as it wasn't exactly what I wanted....so I set out to design my own....let me tell you it defintiely was an adventure.....but after the mess I made in my studio I was VERY pleased with the outcome!
Carousel Dreams three times and colored them all different....just as the horseys are different on each Merry-Go-Round! I stagered the heights of the horseys to make them apear as if they were going up and down as the ride goes around and around and around.
Viva Decor Glitter Liner (Holo).
Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored with Copics:
The Dark Brown Horsey! Copic Colors used: R81, RV19, RV34, E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, G24, BG11, BG15, and BG49.
The Light Brown Horsey! Copic Colors used: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47, E49, BG11, BG15, BG49, G29, G21, and R21. Which pony is your favorite?
After making the Merry-Go-Round I wanted to make a card that matched the theme....so I made a movable Merry-Go-Round card. I was inspired after my mom made -->this<-- card a while back. I've used Kaisercraft Gypsy Sister papers....I absolutely love the range of bold colors in this pack!!! Viva Decor Glitter Liner (Holo) was again used on this card around the sentiment on the scalloped oval. All flowers (from Wild Orchid Crafts) started out white....I airbrushed them with my Copic ABS to match the colors of the card!
Here you can see how the pony slides up and down on the Merry-Go-Round! This was achieved by using two pennies with a foam pad in the middle.
Finally from this angle you can see the gloss and glimmer. The horsey's saddle was covered in diamond glaze to get the shiney effect. The flowers were colored with a Pink Spica for some soft shimmer, and then Star Dust Stickles was added to the bridle. Platinum Stickles was finally added to the horse shoes.
This birthday gift set is available at my Shophandmade Store (which is similar to Etsy), click -->here<-- to go and have a look.
If you've stuck with me through this long post, I thank you very much! I had so much fun creating with the Carousel Dreams stamp! I hope I have inspired you to go and purchase your very own stamp like this to make fun projects too! The set is available TODAY.....and remember Susana does offer an amazing discount if you purchase the whole stamp set together!
