Challenge #184 at Glitter N Sparkle

Hi and welcome back.
I have finally got my Blog back after a long 2 months,
It was taken out of my hands (I think I was hacked)
along with all of my emails.
Luckily I noticed straight away and managed to get them blocked
until it had all been sorted out.

So now it is time to catch up on all of my Crafty Makes
that I have been unable to do .

Hope you enjoy looking at them all...

The Theme at
Red And White

Our Sponsors that week were:-

My Project that
week was:-
Parthanon Horse Digi Stamp
Ike's Art

 To begin with I used a Pre-Cut 18cm Square Card,
I then used an A4 sheet of Deep Red Card
From which I cut a 17.5cm Square, a 9 x 11cm Rectangle
and two 4 x 17.5 Rectangles.
From an A4 Sheet of  White Card
I cut a 17cm Square and a 8.5 x 10.5cm Rectangle.

Nest I printed off the Image twice,

one on Light Red Marble Paper
and one on Dark Red Marble Paper,
(both from Greeting Card Factory Backgrounds)
and Highlighted it using 
my Promarker Pens
Warm Grey 1
Warm Grey 2
Once Printed I fussy cut both Images out 
using the Dark Red Marble for the Eye, Mane and Stand,
and the Light Red for the Main Body of the Head,
and placed it in the White Rectangle

Using the rest of the Dark Red Marble Paper I cut
two 3.7 x 17.2cm Rectangles,
and from the spare Light Red Marble Paper I cut
two 3.4 x 16.8cm Rectangles.

Once I had put all the Layers together,
I used the 'Happy Birthday' Clear Stamp
(Renaissance Love Life - Stamps U Love - Craftstyle)
with Tuxedo Black Ink
in the Middle of the Bottom Marbled Strip.

I decided the Vertical Strip looked to plain,
so I cut some 7mm wide Strips 
from the Dark Red Marble Paper,
which I added on a diagonal down in Stripes.
Finally I added six 6mm AB Red Pearls 
down the Side of the Card.
