Crazy Horses

Had one of those, rare these days, real have a card idea that I want to get made as soon as I got a chance. It is for The Male Room, where today's challenge is to make a card inspired by a song title. Are you old enough to remember The Osmonds? If so, this one will strike a chord with you.

Crazy Horses..... These ones are rising out of a foaming sea scape in the light of a full moon....

I love these Inkognito stamps from Visible Image. I stamped the flourish from the set in versamark and clear embossed these before stamping more on top in Lost Lagoon and Island Indigo. Then I stamped the three horses, before blending the colours over the top of a circular mask to make the moon. Wiping off the excess ink allows the white to show through. 

I made two cards, but some inky mishaps when stamping the sentiment meant that I needed a few stars in my sky. I am not sure if this is then completely suitable as a masculine card, although I actually prefer this second one myself


  1. That's one gorgeous stamp and I love what you've done with it. Yup, I remember the Osmonds and the Bay City Rollers!

  2. Wow - I sure do remember the Osmonds and this was always a favourite with me. Love the way you've made both cards, I think the second is my favourite and stars work perfectly. Great work xxx

  3. Knew exactly which song this was as soon as I saw your card and I'm definitely old enough! I'm a bit of a fan of Visible Image too and have been wondering about these horses. Love what you've created with all that foamy sea, brilliant!

  4. The horses coming out of the foam- is so ethereal! Love it!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
