Mustang Magic

     I am wild crazy about this Mustang by Serendipity Stamps (I posted a card a few weeks back using it).  It won't be long before my daughter and I are back to the ranch we visit for another week of riding.  Over the years it has become a habit to take some of my work as gifts for some of the staff as well as friends I meet up with.  When I last colored this lovely creature I used my Prismscolors - this time around I got my watercolors out.  He looked like he needed a background, so I created the look of a large moon with the sky beginning to darken.  It was a lot of fun to color, I have about 3 done, and ready to assemble, each of them looks a little different.  The blue and brown  paisley paper is the perfect western background for him!!
