Summer Pony

Happy Friday :-)

I spent some time creating today, and finished this cute card using Whimsy Stamps' Summer Pony image from the Crissy Armstrong collection. I colored it earlier this week, but didn't get a chance until today to finish the card. 

My Faber Castell Polychromos were already out so I colored this image with the pencils and blended with baby oil. I inked the edges with distress inks. Sentiment is from the Friendship Tickets set. (Edited to add - I cannot find this stamp set in the Whimsy Shop. Might have been retired. But be sure to check out the rest of the amazing ticket sentiments.) I used a simple circle punch to punch it out. Some glitter was added to the flowers and the butterflies. 
Designer paper is very old from Stampin Up. I sewed around the edges to finish the card.

That is all for today. 
Thanks so much for visiting! Enjoy the rest of your day!

This is so gorgeous Ellie! Your blending with baby oil is such a pro! I just learned about this technique but have to say I got a long way to go before I can get to this stage like you. Love your card. Simply gorgeous and a big fan of Whimsy Stamps. Have a lovely weekend Ellie.

What a sweet image Ellie, and I love the way you have used the stitching to frame it.
