TMITA Painted Pony


I haven't been able to participate in the There's Magic In The Air challenges for a few weeks but I had to find time for this adorable painted pony image. It is also a color challenge that uses 3 of the in colors from SU and a green that I did not have so I substituted for Garden Green.


I used a green textured card stock that had a white core. After I ran it through the Cuttlebug with a folder, I was able to sand it to let the white show through. To color my image I used my Niji waterbrush with ink pads and then accented in a few places with Copics. My sentiment is one of my zillion unmounteds and I have no clue who made it. I stamped it in dusty durango onto a manilla tag that was sponged in soft suede. My pony was pop dotted for dimension. I added some coordinating buttons that were threaded with paper. There is also a crushed curry grograin ribbon. Thant for letting me play along!
