TIO #91 - It's a Horse's Life (equestrian)

Another week and another challenge over on my DragonsDream Tag It On blog... This time it's Zoe's turn, and she has chosen to do "It's a DogsX Horse's Life!" .. tee hee... I have absolutely NO, nil, zilch, nada stamps with horses on, so I had to get crafty again - literally gang!!!! I had a thought of a journey in my head, the journey of the horse from ancient times to now... from cave horse drawings to my wonderful 11.3 hands pony Rosie Posie.... so that's what I attempted... life from then to now...

 So here they are... galloping over the cave walls, intent on getting ready to be useful and beautiful, strong and virile... happy to be our partners and friends and healers...

 This is the full view of my horsey tag, a cave wall, a sadle shape and an almost rosette, with dreams of cantering over fields and jumps, roads and grass... I printed the image from the internet, then added it to the coloured, gessoed tag... the spots are made from a stamp which is called field of sky, and just help to belnd the picture into the tag...

 I thought this was inspired and came out really well!!!! - a leather strap?? Well, yes of course, for helping to ride my horse, but in fact it is coloured grunge paper, with holes punched and eyeletted... I am right proud of myself with this... -oh calm down dear!!!! it's good but not THAT good!!!

 The sadle-shaped sentiment is stamped from an Elusive Images sheet, and exclaims the beginning of the life from cave to me, in the present day...

 As I neared finishing the piece, I realised that rosettes are a large part of our competing and the boys love the red ones best - because mostly, they are for 1st place!!!! So I had to have a rudamentory tag here in the picture, red but not red... so I cut one down and coloured it red but not red...

So there it is, my tag for a horse's life. I hope Zoe feels I have done her theme justice. Why not pop over and join in? It's a wonderful challenge and it's just for fun really. The only rule is that you have to use at least one real stamp... ENJOY!!
Love and light

Stunning tag !


Lovely theme too, if I joined in I'd have to do as you did, make my own digi from a photo of my icelandic mare Fina.
