A little bit of horsing around

I thought I would post one of my first attempts with aqua markers today just so you can see how easy they are to work with!

I made this card when the Crafter's Companion Thelwell set first came out, and it was for my sister's birthday as we were both very much involved with horses when we were younger.

As you can see, I didn't have any proper water colour card at this time, so I opted for a linen card called Lana Laid, which I happened to have in my stock at the time. As you can see it worked quite nicely, but the paper does tend to ball up a bit as it gets wetter, so I definitely think that a good quality water colour card is well worth the investment.

So I printed on e of the digi scenes from the CD and matched it with some complimentary papers, in order to make a large 8 x 8 card.

I think the bit that took the longest was making the rosette embellishment!

I would like to enter a few challenges before I leave you today, and here they are:
