Chinese Year of the Horse

Friday is the start of the Chinese New Year so our theme this week at Cards4Guyz is:-

When Caz suggested this subject I was beginning to panic as I didn't think I could come up with a design, but I racked my brains and then remembered my little boy on a toy horse stamp from the Young Rebels series by Nellie Snellen.

I love this cheeky little boy, just right for a youngster's birthday. As usual I coloured him using Copics as follows:-
Horse - C10,7,5,3,0,blender R20
Hair, Harness boots etc - E53,55,57,59
Jeans -B93,95,97,99
Scarf - YG11,13,17
Shirt - YR12,15,16 
Hat - C3,0,blender
Skin - E000,00,11,R22

The background papers were sloshing around in the stash and were edged in Broken China distressed ink. The border was cut using a Doo Hickey star border die, the leftover stars were dotted around the bottom half of the card. The rope is just a length of string knotted then looped to form a lasso. The star was cut from the same paper as the border and edged in Broken China. The number was cut using an Ellison alphabet die set- Block Party. The greeting was from a Personal Impressions set. 

I shall enter this project in the following challenges:-
Clear it out - Blue
Sketchy colours - Blue,green,white
Crafty calender - Lets Celebrate
