LO inspiration with Heartfelt Creations

Hi everyone welcome to my weekly post with Heartfelt Creations.  Today I want to share a layout I made featuring some of the new stamps and coordinating dies from "My Guy" Collection.  I used some photos of Maria from a few years ago riding a pony at the Renaissance Fair.  
I stamped the horses on watercolor paper and colored with distress re-inkers, cut with the coordinating dies and adhered with pop dots.  I also stamped and cut several of the grass images.
All the flowers and green leaves were heat embossed with black embossing power and colored with Gelatos, love how easy it is to blend them together to create the shading.
The half circles I made by cutting a piece of cardboard with the edge die from the "Layered Scalloped Posy" die set, I then inked it a bit with walnut stain distress ink.

I made borders by stamping the swirl image from the "Palace Entry" set with walnut stain distress ink.  
Thank you so much for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful and creative day.
