Carousel Horse - Many Thanks

When I opened my DT Kit from The Rubber Cafe on Saturday, I literally squeeled out loud...right there in my van, sitting at the border store!  LOL!

I have been collecting Carousel Horse Music Boxes since I was a teenager, so when I saw this image I was so excited to ink it up and make a card.  I have so many idea's for it!

For this card, I started out by stamping the Carousel Horse on 110lb Neenah Cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx Ink, and then I sprinkled on some embossing powder and let my heat gun do it's job.  About a year ago, someone on Splitcoast recommended embossing images so that the ink wouldn't run when using Copics.  I have found that embossing an image that has fine details makes it much easier to colour.  If you give it a try, let me know how you find it. 

Anyway, then I coloured my image...while staring at one of my own personal Carousel Horses for reference.  I may have wound it up a few times too, just for kicks!  The colours were inspired by the KL Stampin and Scrapping Challenge # 12, to use pink, black and a neutral...hmmm, does dark grey count as black?  We'll have to see what they say...I embossed in black...does that count?  And, the layout was inspired by Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #56.   I had to alter it a little bit to work with the square card and the bigger image.  All that being said, the card came together very quickly and I am so very pleased with the result.  I hope that you enjoy it too!
