For all the horse lovers out there!
My parents and younger brother were just in town last weekend. My dad was here to go to a horse clinic with his beloved (yet recently gelded) pasofino, and was visiting the other handful of pasofinos he owns. I guess the trainers were great and my dad wanted to give them a thank you card. My mom and I had been stamping for an hour or so, and my dad said he wanted us to make him a card with a horse on it. I don't own any horse stamps yet. But I loved the "Very Punny" doodlesque set, so I set out to create my own using a fine-tipped permanent marker. I used an aquapainter to paint the horse to look like his Dancing Prince buckskin (I didn't have the perfect colors).
My mom picked out the colors, and I got to work assembling the card. My dad got a happy look on his face and was excited to use the card. I don't know if he was expecting and doodle cartoon of a horse, but I think it's perfectly fabulous. I even created a doodle horse on my computer and printed it out to make a stack of cards for him. I'll post more variations of "Doodle My Horse" later on.
