horse card

the horse on this card is another free digi stamp. I found this one on splitcoast stampers from sewmanycards. love it! The sketch is from ICS
this is also for the ABC blog challenge for A - anything goes with an option of animals. for this card, I printed the horse, colored him with copics. I rounded the corners because it was supposed to be a circle (according to the sketch). The card base is made from fancy pants kraft patterned paper. And for the triangle I really wanted to use this moxxie horse paper that Janet gave me a while ago, I knew I still had a little bit lying around. ... Well when I found it, it had been attacked by Ellie with pinking shears, but I thought - hey why not piece it together with a zig zag stitch. The horse has patchworks on him! so I made the triangle from a scrap paper and glued the scraps of horse paper onto it, trying to get the straighter edges showing so it would be easier to sew. Then I sewed along the seams with a zig zag stitch. then I decided to make it a bit smaller and sew it onto the brown cardstock with a zig zag stitch too. the brown behind the horse is chatterbox. and the sticker is also moxxie.
