Dala Horse Thank You Cards

I just came back from a long vacation visiting Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, and Russia. When we were in Sweden, I realized the Dala horse is a traditional carved, painted wooden statue of a horse originating in the Swedish province of Dalarna (Dalecarlia). In the old days the Dalecarlian horse was mostly used as a toy for children; in modern times it has become a symbol of Dalarna, as well as of Sweden in general. I would like to make two thank you cards for our cell group members who helped us to organize this trip. I think the best stamp set to make the thank you card is the Dala Horse set from Neat and Tangled. Below are the two cards I made:





These two cards are pretty easy to make, just colored the horses with Copic makers and highlighted them with the clear Wink of Stella brush pen. I would like to use these cards to attend this week's Simon Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes, below is the challenge photo:


Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI, Stampin' Up
Stamps: Neat and Tangled
Ink Pads: Versafine, Stampin' Up, Distress inks
Dies: MFT
Others: Copic markers, the Wink of Stella clear brush pen, clear embossing powder, MISTI, foam tapes

Altenew May 2018 Inspiration Challenge

Here is Altenew May 2018 Inspiration Challenge, below is the challenge inspiration photo:


And here is the card I made to attend this challenge:


I brushed Tombow dual brush pens on my flower stamp (from "Sketchy Floral" set). I misted the watercolor paper with water and stamped the flower stamp on the watercolor paper. It creates a loose watercolor look. Let it dry completely. Then I cleaned my flower stamp and put Versamark ink pad on the stamp, and stamped the image on top of the watercolor background. I used Hero Arts satin pearl embossing powder to heat embossing the image. I used the "happy" die from "Halfton Happy" set and die cut the word three times. I glued the "happy" together and brushed it with the clear Wink of the Stella pen. Then, I applied clear Nuvo drops on the "happy" to make it dimensional. I white embossed the "birthday" from "Halfton Happy" set and cut it out. Finish the card by attaching some iridescent gems on the background. 

Below is another look of the card:


Supplies:
Cardstock: Stampin' Up, Tim Holtz watercolor paper
Stamps: Altenew
Die: Altenew
Ink Pads: Versamark
Others: Tombow dual brush pens, clear Wink of the Stella pen, Nuvo drops, white embossing powder, satin pearl embossing powder, iridescent gens, foam tapes
