Squeeze the lid of the Blushing Bride Ink Pad to get a pool of ink in the lid. Open the pad but leave the lid exposed. Use a Blender Pen to pick up some ink from the puddle in the lid and color in the tack on the horse. Pick up more ink from the pad lid as needed. Remember to stroke the tip of the Blender Pen in one direction only. If you go back and forth, then the card stock could start to pill and tear. When you are done coloring with the Blushing Bride color, scribble the tip of the Blender Pen back and forth on scratch paper until no more color is coming off.
Repeat Step 11 above using the Sahara Sand Ink Pad. Color in the mane and tail of the horse. Clean the Blender Pen.
Use the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add some sparkle to the pole.
Use the side of the brush tip on the Blushing Bride Marker to lightly outline the label.
Adhere the horse label to the Sahara Sand label so it is centered. Then, adhere the labels to the right side of the card.
Peel the adhesive backing off one of the small Metal Rimmed Pearls and adhere it to the top of the pole.
Cut a 3-1/2" piece of Silver 1/4" Natural Trim. Place the ribbon flat on your work paper. Run the brush tip of the Blushing Bride Marker back and forth across the ribbon to dye it pink. Flip the ribbon over and add more color if needed. Let the ribbon dry for a few minutes.
Once dry, tie a half knot in the center of the ribbon and trim the ends. Adhere to the bottom of the vanilla label with a Mini Glue Dot.
