I need to make some Christmas cards with horses on them. This one will be for my sister as she rides a grey horse. I did a background by doing a heat embossing resist (using one of the Itty Bitty Background stamps) for the snow, masking off the snowy hills, and sponging the blue sky. Then stamped the trees with first and second generations of ink, added a bit of glitter to them and to the hills. A die cut horse, a sentiment, and a snow embossing folder background finish it off.
It's going to the Splitcoaststampers Technique Lovers' Challenge ("Can You Resist?"), the Splitcoaststampers Christmas Card Challenge for August ("Furry Friends"), and to the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Card Challenge ("Trees").
