Good little pony gets a treat

Quick post on another wonderful Wednesday at OCS .  I’ve chosen a Whimsy Stamp called Good Pony from the Chrissy Armstrong collection.  The challenge at OCS for the month of July is BBQ / food.  I think this qualifies as there is an apple treat for the four legged friend. Can you believe I colored this image and then had to seek out paper to match – with no luck.  P1010477 copy I ended up making patterned paper with White Stazon.  Check out the great selection of patterned paper at OCS.    The stars were drawn and hand cut along with the black mats.  The image was stamped onto Xpress it Blend cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with copic markers and cut into a rectangle.  I’ve been trying to use old (really old) products from my stash from 100 years ago…… do you remember “mesh?” I dug some out of my drawer and folded it around the bottom of my card, topping it with a knotted yellow gingham ribbon.

I’ve noticed that there is only ONE entry for the free stamps from OCS!!!  Hope to see your card there so I can visit your blog and say "hello”.

Hope your Wednesday and the rest of the week are warm and sunny.  “Remember, stamp up a storm, ink up a wish and send it on to someone to make their day”.
