Pink Pony Birthday

Inspiration

This card was made for a special girl turning six - she is celebrating with a "painted pony party" with REAL ponies! This party service has white ponies, and they've dyed the manes pink and blue and rainbow colors - it's really quite cute! So, I just HAD to find an image of a little girl with a pony. I found this image at Karen's Doodles, and it fits the big event just perfectly!Painted Pink Pony

Instructions

Image

Print the digital image on the white cardstock. I print it on the same paper I stamp on for COPICS (Stamper's Select), and usually let it sit for a while before I start coloring.

Color with COPIC markers. I used these colors:

  • Pony's mane, tail, hooves: RV10, RV32, RV34, RV55
  • Pony shadows: C00, C1, C3
  • Girl's dress, vest, and boots: RV10, RV32, RV34
  • Girl's hair: YR30, YR31, E37
  • Girl's skin: E000, E00, RV10
  • Girl's panties: BG000, BG01, BG02, BG05
  • Grass: YG00, YG01, YG03
  • Background: BG0000, BG000

Embellish the image with SPICA pens - Blossom and Clear on the mane, tail and hooves; Pitch Black on the pony's eyes. Add adhesive rhinestones on the boots, and pearls on the flowers.

Assembly

Punch the bottom edge of the front of the card using the edge punch. Mount the strip of white paper just above the punched border, and mount the patterned paper strip centered on the white.

Cut and emboss a dark pink lacey square, and mount the finished image on the die cut. Mount this centered on the front of the card.

Finish off with some adhesive pearl flourishes around the image.

Thanks for stopping by!
