Color a Horse in a Barn – Polychromos Pencils


 Color a Horse in a Barn – Polychromos Pencils

Hello friends! This is a special little post for my horse fans out there….a few asked if I’d color this stamp, so I bought it to do so! I tried out the Ink on 3 No Line ink as well….pleased with my first stamping of it but will hold off on a final verdict til I play with it more – you guys know me, I want to see if things work with lots of mediums! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The card turned into an easel card; I had done just the diecutting with the MFT stitched dies, and it just screamed out to be a special presentation after spending so long coloring it! The scores on the base are at 5.5″ and 2.75″ – and I cut the base so it was narrower than the front panel.

And yes…the colors!

Here’s the top view of the inside of the card….

I had first colored this scene in Copics while at my stamping group….

  1. These are just great!

  2. Both are beautiful. So stunning.

  3. A beautiful easel card Sandy, I certainly would love to have that stood up in my room – it is amazing! Thank you for sharing it with us crafters. :O)

  4. Gorgeous pencil work, I could watch that all day, so soft and I love it as it grows. Liking the Copic one & I see the difference hugely between the two.
    I hoping, fingers crossed, to start the marker jump start class next week, as long as my condition stays level, then today why dying my hair my daughter said that when I’ve done that she will pay for the pencil crayons jumpstart course, thank you baby x

  5. Is that some kind of special ruler you used for drawing the lines in this video?

  6. Can I say WOW again? Wow!

  7. This is beautiful. Where can I see the copic version?

    1. Oops! Totally forgot to post that one. Added it just now, so refresh the post.

  8. Thank you for the help with color pencil coloring. I went looking online for the pot of baby oil you use. I couldn’t find it. I like that it’s not liquid. What form is it?
    Thank you!

    1. It’s baby oil I poured INTO a little jar. There’s a video here:

    2. So miss Sandy!
      You FINALLY did a horse! I had asked you before about this, but you declined,,saying you didn’t Horses . Well girlfriend, this is beautiful. Now just a suggestion, if you want my address to send this card to it’s permanent home, I’ll send it to you. It would make an awesome birthday gift. I’ll be 71 this August! Please thinknon this!

  9. Great card, I love that you coloured wiht Polychromos and not with Copics. The Polychromos I have the Copics not, so it is nice to see from time to time that you colour with these great pencils. Thanks for the tips on te way, I for instance didn’t know that you could colour over the whole again after using the baby oil.

  10. Another stunner.

  11. WOW Sandy, this is simply STUNNING! (I’m speechless!)

  12. Super sweet and very super adorable!!! Whimsy stamps makes horse stamps,Inkadinkado , Deep Red, Magnolia rubber stamps, House Mose has one or two, Impression obsession, Northwoods, and Stampendous. There are a few more companies out there that carry horse stamps!!

  13. Neat card – and stamp set. Loved watching you add every muscle – but I think that’s a sunrise, and that nice pony is looking for apples and oats!! I just put this set on my wish list at Ellen’s because, as you said, the sentiments are fun and different – thanks!
