Dreaming - Happy Heights

Hi everyone.  I'm here with another new stamp from the Penny Black Dreaming release.  This time I'm using one of the fun images from Happy Heights (30-548).  So cute! :)

Don't you just love his expression?  This guy brings a smile to my face.  I wanted him to be the focal, so added a very simple black heat embossed sentiment (Special Sentiments - 30-574) with heart (Huggable - 30-588).  And added a little grass under his feet.  The watercolouring is done with distress inks and crystal glaze was added to the heart and hooves for a little shine

Here's a close-up ...
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!






Stamps:  Happy Heights (Penny Black); Special Sentiments (Penny Black)
Paper:  Mixed Media (Strathmore 140 lb.)
Ink:  Black (Memento); Distress Inks:  Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Gathered Twigs, Festive Berry, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn (Tim Holtz)
Accessories & Tools:  Clear embossing powder (Ranger), heat tool, water brush, Crystal Glaze (Nuvo)
