Wings of Hope


Whimsy Stamps have recently launched a stunning set of stamps of carousel horses that I coveted. However, even better, they have produced a one-off digital carousel horse that is available almost instantly and, of course, costs less. All of this sounds like a good reason to buy the stamp, but the most important one of all is that the stamp is a fundraiser with all proceeds going to the Red Cross Haiti Relief. You can buy the image here.

I've followed Jeanette's sketch from this week's Friday Sketcher's Challenge, which is a great one for a large image like this. I'm entering this week's Cupcake Craft Challenge, which is four-legged and furry and also Basic Grey's Animals Challenge.

My carousel horse is coloured with Copics as well as lots of Diamond and Gold Stickles, the edges of the image are sponged with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. The gorgeous background papers are Basic Grey Wisteria, a pad I got for my birthday and haven't broken into until today. I used the first Martha Stewart punch I ever bought on the border, which is called Flourish and the gold embossed sentiment is from Elusive Images.
