Majestic Beauty

     "My treasures do not clink together or glitter, They gleam in the sun and neigh in the night" a gypsy verse that fits this image.
     This is my newest horse image, a stamp from Serendipity Stamps, and its just beautiful. As I colored this image I was thinking of my next trip to the desert to ride with my daughter in a few months.  Hence the lovely Saguaro cactus in the background.  I toyed with several sentiments to place on the front but none of them did justice to this lovely image.
     The image was stamped on Gina K Luxury CS and colored with my Prismacolor pencils.  The background was stamped on some more Gina K Luxury CS, and I used my Copics to color it.  I then tore a piece of paper and laid it in various positions on the background, and with a dauber, gently tapped the color Bliss Blue by Stampin Up to create some clouds.  Then I edged the two rectangular pieces, as well as the image, with my Gold Leafing Pen.
     Stampin Sisters In Christ challenged us to make a card this week that depicts our style.  I don't know about anyone else but my style changes every time I sit down to create a card.  This does however show my love of horses and gives you a feel for who I am.

Thanks for stopping by,
