Hi! Today I'm sharing a custom creation. I received an unusual request: a card for an equine loving new mom-to-be. My friend told me she wanted a "beautiful blond pregnant girl with a white horse". Suuure.... No problem. Only it was a problem. No such image existed that I could find so I improvised, combining a free line art from AppleHunter on deviantArt (HERE) with Pregnant Woman from Whimsy Stamps.
The images are colored with Copics and I paper pieced the woman's dress. Papers are My Mind's Eye - Bramble Rose. I've used a few dies here: Labels Seventeen Nestabilities and Romantic Rectangles from Spellbinders as well as the Heart Doily Border from La-La-Land Crafts. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things. The set it's included in is called Baby Bump. I added flowers, a litle bling, a sprinkling of Fran-tage, and a Tim Holtz metal buckle.
I love being challenged to think outside the box! I had a hard time getting started on this one, but once I did it all just came together and I'm really happy with the outcome! Hopefully the recipient will be too!
I will be crafting in all my spare time the remainder of the week! I hope you'll drop by again soon to see what else I've been up to!
Markers used: Copics (E00, E11, E21, E23, E25, E31, E39, Y23, Y32, Y35, R20, N0, N2, N4, N6).
