Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #4

I was browsing through some of the challenges out there and found THIS one and decided to play along. It's called Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge and this week the challenge is to create a card or project with an animal on it. I created this card for my BIL's birthday. He used to break and train thoroughbred horses, so I know I'm always safe using a horse image for his cards. This image is by Serendipity and was colored using Tombows and a wet brush. I layered it with 2 different Nestability dies using soft suede and bermuda blue. I stamped the background with another horse stamp, just randomly stamping once, twice, and a third time without reinking to give the effect of running horses. The sentiment panel was done with yet a third Nestability die and layered with some Bermuda Blue polka dot ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope your weekend is getting off to a great start!
