Horsing Around

Hello my crafty friends! It's been a month since my last post, which is very unusual for me, but I've had so much going on & quite frankly I was experiencing a bad case of crafters block. I guess I just needed to take a little break & focus on other things in my life for a few weeks. Of course I can't exist without crafting for too long! I feel like I've got some of my creative mojo back now so it's all good.

I did something different & outside of my comfort zone for today's card. I've never been into coloring stamped images but I recently acquired some of the awesome new Zig watercolor markers, so I'm giving it a go. I watched a few videos & I'm starting to get the hang of using them, blending colors, etc. It's actually pretty fun!
