STAMPlorations spring release - live love ride


Hi friends! I'm back from a wonderful week in the sun and snow in northern Italy and want to welcome you to day 1 of the STAMPlorations Spring Release. The four-legged friends are the star of the release and today it's all about those big, beautiful beasts. Meet Live Love Ride.


I immediately fell in love with that artistic, flowing beauty and its beauty reminded me in some way of a unicorn. So when this rainbow watercolored scrap fell into my hand while I was cleaning/organizing my craft room, I decided to pair the two for a dreamy look. Did some stamping in black and heat embossing in white.


And then on a completely different note...


How's that for polar opposites? But I had to color those blooms on the horse's head. So I thought... look for some rarely-ever-used-but-hoard-oh-so-much-of-it PP with blooms. When I saw this old Basic Grey design I decided that horse needed pink blooms and green leaves. I heat embossed the image and then used watercolor and colored pencil to color it too.

Opted for a wonky angle on the watercolored image so went with a wonky sentiment design too. Half-stamped and half heat embossed onto a pink scrap.

Shery's offering generous prizes during this release. Leave comments by April 2 on all the release posts this week on the STAMP blog and the DT blogs to be in the running for a $25 GC or all five new stamp sets from this release! Check out what my teamies created over at the STAMPlorations blog.

I'm joining the fun at:

Addicted to Stamps and More - CAS
Penny Black and More - Feature a Creature
Kreativtanten Challenge - Tiere
