Horsing Around

You know sometimes, when you see a stamp, you just have to have it.  That's what happened to me when I saw the image for this card.  I have a friend with a horse and made her a birthday card using it.  Luckily, she found it amusing (I knew she would, her horse and my son are very much alike).  Anyway, I've found an excuse to dust it off again as this week's challenge at Passion for Pro Markers is Animals.  I've coloured him up with the same set of browns that I used on Morag for my previous card (a mixture of promarkers and trias).  I'm going to be lost when they run out of ink.  I use them all the time.They look so different but I swear they are the same colours.  I've kept it very simple as the image says it all really.  I hope you like it.

The image is from LOTV and reminds me a lot of an old Thelwell jigsaw I had when I was a girl.  His images probably put me off horse riding for life.  It never looked very comfortable the way he depicted it.

Thanks for reading.
