Merry Go Round - Moving

My beautiful Carousel Horses arrived last weekend and I couldn't wait to colour them up.

Now my Darling Other Half has always liked a challenge and when he saw these beauties he reckoned they really should be on displayed on an old fashioned Merry Go Round (Just like in Mary Poppins)Well who was I to stop him from designing me one. (You just cant accuse me of spoiling all his fun)
After several hours of programming my Craftrobo and copious amounts of swearing (air blue springs to mind)such as oops I did that wrong never mind!!!!!!!! I'll start again. LOL This is the finished result.

Sorry these are not great photos as it is raining here so had to take them in doors.
For some reason these have ended up really dark. But you should get the idea.
All the horses I have coloured with Copics
Some I have added Sakura Glitter Pen

And these ones I used Fluffy Stuff and Ultra Fine Glitter.

The little mirrors were cut with my nestabilities

Lattice work is my fab Martha Stewart punch (I just so love these)

Definately think me and my OH make a good team, what do you think?
I am going to enter this into the Floral Fantasies Challenge Moving, which they say can be interpreted in any way well I reckon a Merry go Round has got to count as moving, who have a fab prize for there first challenge which is sponsored by Sir Stampalot.

And just because I love this and those beautiful horses I am also going to enter it into Bt the Cute and Girly
which is Love but can be interpreted in any way including stash that you love.


  1. Hi Beccy

    I really don't know what to say other than absolutely fabulous.

    I can well imagine the frustration putting it all together and cutting out, but so worth all your effort.
