Whimsy Stamps August Rubber and Die Release - Release Day Hop

Welcome to the Whimsy Stamps August 2013 rubber stamp and die release BLOG HOP!

For those of you who are new to Whimsy Stamps, we hold a 3-day new release event each month: a Sneak Peek Blog Hop on the day before the release (yesterday) and this month we showcased the new stamps from our fab new artist Jo Davies of Time for Tea Designs for our sneak peek hop, a Release Day Blog Hop on release day (today), and finally a Review Day Blog Hop (tomorrow) the day after the release.

Each blog hop has a prize of 2 new release stamps hidden somewhere along the way and you have 24hrs to enter each prize draw!
For my creation I used the new stamp from Crissy Armstrong called 'Horse Love'.  I used to ride a lot when I was younger and would dream of owning my own horse so I've always got a soft spot for these beautiful creatures.  I've made a shaker card for a change haven't done one of these in a long time and it has been coloured up using my copics.
Medium:  Copics
Paper:  Prima 'Rondelle'
Dies:  Spellbinders 'Labels 22'
The side view next.  I wasn't 100% sure what to use in the shaker part so in the end settled on little pearl flowers which I've had in my stash for an age.
The close up next.  Unfortunately, it's not a brilliant picture as the light kept bouncing off the acetate when I photographed it - I'd forgotten they're not the easiest things to photograph!
List of copics
Horse:  W1, W3, W5, W7 + 100 for the mane/tail
Face/Body:  E000, E00, E21, R20
Clothes:  R81, R83, R85/E50, E53, E57
Hair/Boots:  E53, E57, E29
Grass:  G29, G21, G24, G28
