Glitter shot
I was lucky enough to win a prize at Crafting When We Can  and the prize was some digistamps by Fabrika Fantasy. To be honest, I probably would not have normally gone for these but I noticed the challenge at Cupcake Inspirations is 'mythical' , so I thought I'd try using this image to enter.

I printed it out and cropped it to focus on just part of the image. I found colouring it, with Promarkers, a little challenging so I hope I've got it right and it doesn't look weird- well, any more weird than a winged horse already looks! I just used two grey and a lavender markers,

I masked the horse and used a Crafter's Workshop template to stencil with Distress ink.  I stamped the sentiment (Alte New), and added Nuvo drops and a mat of glitter paper. Finally, I added glitter.

As well as Cupcake Inspirations, I'd like to enter:

Dream Valley  differently coloured hair
Crafty Cardmakers things with wings
Fab and Funky  fantasy
Inky Chicks  use purple
