The Color challenge this week is to use Chocolate Chip, Old Olive and Vanilla. The dessert option is to have one rounded corner in your design. The Teapot Tuesday challenge is to use a horse in your design and include a flower somewhere.
I chose to use this beautiful horse image designed by Theresa Momber from her Out West set (available at Gina K Designs). I colored my horse with Copic markers (E19, E29, E35, E37, E49, E50, and E57). I cut out the image and popped it up on a Very Vanilla oval panel. For the flowers, I used my Martha Stewart hydrangea punch in Old Olive and Stampin' Up's double circle punch for the Ruby Red centers and glued those around the oval panel. I cut out a larger Scalloped Oval (Nestability) panel in Very Vanilla and attached my image panel to that with pop-up dots for dimension.
The chocolate background was embossed with a paisley embossing folder. The polkadotted Old Olive designer paper is from Stampin' up and was cut using the Topnote die.
Here's somewhat of a close up so you can see the horse and the dimension a little better.
