SOS151 - Dark Horse

It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash. This week is Sing It To Me, and we'd like you to use a song to inspire your project. Oh, and if you're thinking about using Happy Birthday (or its sibling: Happy Anniversary) as your song, forgetaboutit! That would be way to easy!

Since I have a preteen daughter, our house resonates with Selena Gomez and Katy Perry - and obviously if you hear the same song ten times a day it will get stuck in your head... so my inspiration song is Katy Perry's Dark Horse:

I know the video is completely different, but before I saw it I always had this image of dark horses under stormy skies in my head :)

The stamp is from Inkadinkado, Sky is made with Soft Sky and our very new Lost Lagoon inks, for the grass I used Pear Pizzaz and Mossy Meadow (new) inks.

Challenges:
Addicted to Stamps - Inspired by a Song - Katy Perry Dark Horse
My Craft Spot - Inking Technique - brayering + sponging
A Creative Romance - One for the boys
Artistic Inspiration   no designer paper

This is gorgeous! The horse is spectacular and I love your brayering and sponging. The flourishes add such a beautiful touch, especially in the tonal shade you chose. Just beautiful! Thank you for sharing your creativity with us at My Craft Spot!

Hugs and blessings,
