Sshhh... It's a Secret

Well it's sort of a secret ~ about today's card.  

You see I was asked to design today's card for someone's Secret Sister.  Her and her husband celebrated 40 years of marriage last week.  Yep, they deserve a special card, don't they!

This couple love their horses dearly, so my instructions were  ~ A horse card, with one or more horses...and oh, can you make them look like their horses?  Simple right? 

Well if I was an artist it would have been simple, but I'm not.  But I was able to see them on their horses on Facebook- Appaloosa's and very beautiful.

After several attempts of finding the right image, I finally settled on this one.   

I used my Copic markers for coloring and blending.  I added a solid black mat and mounted the colored image on a grey piece of barn board.  I added a pair of silver boot charms on the black twine bow.

Happy 40th Anniversary to Ralph and Kathy!
