{Spotlight Project} Cornelia is Rocking the Horse

Hi, Cornelia here sharing a fun action card with you today:

I am using the new set, HEAVEN SENT.

That little rocking horse just rocks - don't you think so? You'll see later on it really does. So, how did this card come together? I'll show you all the steps - not too many.

Started out with a piece of scrap card stock and stamped the horse with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Colored it with Copics and fussy cut it.

Added an action wobble sticker to the back side - I trimmed it a bit to not show.

Embossed the background panel with a Papertrey embossing folder

...and sponged it with distress inks.

Felt it needed some splatters, so I put some distress ink on an acrylic block added water and splattered with a paint brush. 

Added the sentiment - heat embossed in white.

And now - you wanna see it rock, right?

Isn't that fun?

See you in June!

  17. AMAZING and I love how the touch of watercolor is added to the already embossed paper - what a stellar and way cool idea!! Super sweet and darling card!!

  18. Your card is adorable, Cornelia! But the video I'm seeing is of a car ride set to music? I'm not sure what happened there ... thought you would like to know. Perhaps I am missing the context? Hugs, Darnell

  19. Okay, I just refreshed and apparently, the bobble is just for a few seconds and then if you click the picture to see it again, it advances to some other unrelated video. Never mind. I'm old, you know! (I was hoping to hear your voice!) Hugs, Darnell

    1. Sorry, no voice.... I am old too, you know and making a video and uploading it is just not my thing.....

  20. Too cute Cornelia - a lovely idea which I will need later in the year :-)

  21. So fun, Cornelia ... love that wobble! Like Darnell, I too was hoping to hear your voice ... but completely understand video making not being your thing ... it's not mine either! Anita :)
