Back again! My favourite all time film has got to be Mary Poppins-I loved it as a kid and I still love it now so imagine how much I loved the new Whimsy carousel horses when I saw them! Fast forward a few weeks and I'm proud to say that I'm now designing for Whimsy Stamps:) When I got my dt package at the weekend I just had to start a project with these beautiful horses and decided to make an actual carousel! And here it is:~
I stumbled across this tutorial here and it became the inspiration for the making of the carousel though my measurements are different. I decided to go all vintage/distressed in sepia tones so I covered each piece I built with book pages that had been distressed with Tim Holtz inks. Before actually putting everything together I decided I wanted some shimmer to the project too so I spritzed everything in Shimmerz treasured hymn then applied tons of perfect pearls in copper. The gorgeous carousel horses are coloured in sepia tones with copics.
I added Shimmerz blingz in gold glimmer to the saddles:~
I bought some gorgeous Magnolia flowers from Clare's shop in town which I thought would go perfectly. I added some extra Shimmerz to them too:)
The beads were also from Clare.
I think this project fits in perfectly with the current Simon Says challenge which is so distressed! Also going to enter at Pile it on who want to see animals as does Charisma Cardz, Sir Stampalot who have a fantasy theme, and By The Cute and Girly who has a fairytale theme this month. If you want to purchase these or other Whimsy stamps go here or if you live in the UK you can grab them at Quixotic Paperie here.
Think that really is it from me today now! Thanks so much for popping by and I really appreciate your comments, and always try to come visit you back too:)
