Mare and Foal

Here a wonderful image for the horse lovers in your life using the image
 Mare and Foal from QKR Stampede.

I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils, then I used an ordinary graphite pencil and drew the freehand distant ground and mountains, the green grass is freehand also – not a part of the image.

The Flourish Frame embossing folder from Cuttlebug was used for the embossing design. I sponged the embossing to make it stand out and also to cover some white that appeared from the embossing.

The nailheads are attached with Aleene’s Paper Glaze.
The image panel and borders are mounted to the card with foam squares.

This is a card front for the image company to use for card displays at shows…or I’d do an envelope and insert.
