Freedom horse

A card made for my oldest sister, who had her birthday a few days ago:Daqadoodles150111zo10392896

Van verschillende sites:

Het schattige zeepaardje staat voor plezier. Deze zul je uiteraard op straat niet tegenkomen, maar wel in dromen. Het zeepaardje gebruikt de kracht van het dansen, heeft het vermogen zich staande te houden tijdens emotionele momenten en geeft regelmatig nakomelingen. Je kunt dit dus ook met vruchtbaarheid linken.

Het zeepaardje staat symbool voor vaderschap en zorg, vrijheid en sierlijkheid. Ook staat het zeepaardje symbool voor een andere kijk op het leven; nieuwe emoties.

Zeepaardje – Inzicht, vrijheid, magische krachten, geneeskracht, mannelijke zachte kracht met vrouwelijke sterke kracht balans hiertussen, helderziendheid

From various sites:

The adorable seahorse means fun. You won’t see this animal on street, but you can see encounter it in dreams. The seahorse uses the power of dancing, and has the ability to be strong during emotional moments and gives offspring regularly, so there is a link with fertility.

The seahorse symbolises fatherhood and care, freedom and elegancy. It also is a symbol for a different look on life; new emotions.

Seahorse – Insight, freedom, magical powers, healingpowers, a balance between male gentile power and female strong power, clearvoyance.


(I missed a letter with the embossing, added it before taking the other two pictures).

This is my first entry for the chocolate baroque colour challenge #6.


I allready had made the background a while ago while playing with yellow and blue bister. As I wanted a card with a seahorse, I chose this one and coloured it first with distress ink, then again a bit with caran d’ache neo colours. Those crayons have very good coverage, which helps make the colour more vibrant. But it also dulls the black lines of the stamped image : /

I didn’t just want to add a “happy birthday” line, since I’m not sure if it’s a happy birthday (her daughter had a severe accident a while ago). She became 40. A year ago she ofcourse had imagined her 40th birthday very different. She uses the seahorse herself, made wetfelted seahorses as they have a special meaning to her now.

This is a video of an exposition of some of her work in October.

Here is the video embedded, though it doesn’t always seem to work:
