horse on a tag


I ordered some new stamps direct from Stampotique and they arrived a few days ago ..

... definitely a happy parcel!  These are stamps I haven't been able to get hold of in the UK, otherwise I would support a 'local' stamp store.  The ones I know of here that stock Stampotique are a sprinkle of imagination, art from the heart, the cubby hole and the stamp attic.

I had a play with my distress inks the yesterday; I'd forgotten how vivid the colours were!  So when I wanted a strong green background for my lovely pink yummy horse I got them out.  This was made easier by the fact that just after my op, when I couldn't move much, I labelled them all and organised them into colours :)

I also made the background that I stamped 'horse' on using distress, this time the minis.  I followed Tim's June 2014 tag technique of inking up the back of a stencil (I used Tim Holtz' doily layering stencil), spraying it with water then stamping with it.  Once it was dry I stamped 'horse' over the top and cut him out.

I love finding random sentences in old books and I decided this one fitted 'horse' perfectly!  I made another tag using horse, which you can see over on the Stampotique Designers Blog.

Stampotique stamps used:


  1. Great tag, Sarah - I love horse and your sentiment!

  2. Love it - still chuckling! Elizabeth x

  3. I like the way you shop :) Great tag :)

  4. Love little horsey! Great little quote too! (definitely meant for those lovely eyes) Even more beautiful irl!
    Such fun!!! Chrisx

  5. I have to say that this is one of TH (tag shaped) stencils that I didn't buy! I couldn't even imagine how I would use it! Obviously, seeing it here, I lack imagination! Love our doily background, Sarah! OK, so I love the horse, too! Love how you have given him/her character by just changing the background colors on which you stamp! Great tags!

  6. hilarious Sarah and what a cute little horse.

  7. Great tag, Sarah !! I have got the horse on order too !!
