Good Pony

My sister has a horse ranch and so I thought this card was rather fitting for her on her birthday!  This is "Good Pony", a rubber image I created for Whimsy Stamps.   I made the dark pink paper myself using a black liner marker and a white gel pen on a pink sheet of Basic Grey paper.  The image was coloured with Copics (sorry, no list today).   Those are actual hinges on the left which I created and adhered the two separate pieces of cardstock using brads.  
And, PS - I have another freebie posted on my Facebook page, so if you want to grab it while you can (its being taken down soon!) you'll have to "like" my FB page to get it!! Here's the link to my page:
Thanks for looking today!

50% Off sale on Digi's!!

Hi everyone! I have another card to share with you today, this one is made with "Over The Moon", a digital image I illustrated for Whimsy Stamps.  And what's more, there's a 50% sale today - Tues. Sept 10, 2013 - so get 'em while they're hot! 
I coloured the image with a combination of Copics and coloured pencil.  I'll give you the Copic list, although there is a lot of coloured pencil on top, so I'm not sure how relevant it is.

Clouds: YR30, B000, 12, 14, 16
Cow white areas: YR30, C0, 1, 2, 3, E40, 42

I had fun making the background paper for this one!  I used a sheet of canvas paper, and just went to town on it with my acrylic paints.  Then I roughed it up with an exacto knife to add scratch lines and distressing.  There's lots of texture on this paper!

I'm entering it into the following challenges:
Fab n' Funky: Opposites Attract (opposite colours - mine are orange and blue)
