Lovely card. That watercolour technique is perfect with that beautiful stampendous stamp.


This is beautiful! The colors are soft and the word that immediately came to mind was "tranquil". The horse's mane blowing makes it seem like he/she has an urgent message. So many details...love, love, love!

Teresa beg

Beautiful way to color this horse.

barbara macaskill

This is absolutely stunning! I love the watercolor effect and the lines of the horse are so soft and flowy! It looks like his mane is blowing in the wind! I swear that I can see the feeling in the horse's eye. The shading on his face is marvelous!!
I am sure that whoever receives this card will feel much better knowing how much love went into making it!!
I love my Faber Castell DMC products and look forward to seeing what the designers come up with the rest of the week! See you tomorrow!
