Peachy Keen Stamps is having their regular Tuesday challenge and it is a sketch. I started doodling the sketch on a piece of paper for inspiration and while I was drawing it ideas popped into my head. Things like, that looks like a fireplace with a Christmas village on top, a Christmas tree would look cute there, oh and how about a rocking horse that really rocks back and forth (with the assistance of an amazing Action Wobble) over here. I started designing my creation in my Gypsy and then when I got around to cutting it out and putting it together this is what I ended up with.
It is a 12 x 12 wall hanging. I'm either going to put it in a frame sans glass or a shadowbox and use it for a Christmas decoration. There is actually a LOT of dimension to this project, it is just hard to catch in a picture. The tree and presents are popdotted and with the Action Wobble on the rocking horse it sticks out even further than the tree and the presents.
I used Peachy Keen Stamps Simple Sallies and brown ink for the cute little doll's face.
I used an Action Wobble and Peachy Keen Stamps Funshine Faces Side Views for the rocking horse.
Here is a little video showing the rocking horse rocking back and forth. Because the Action Wobble had to be placed in the horses middle area it doesn't wobble like crazy, but just enough for a nice rocking motion. I love experimenting with these fun little Action Wobbles.

Full Disclosure: I was given the Action Wobbles at no cost to me to review on this blog. However, if I didn't believe in it, I wouldn't be talking it up!
