Vintage Carousel Horse

I remember a carousel horse like this from when I was a little girl. How I would love to ride it and pretend that I was riding a real horse as I went around and around. This beautiful digi image is by Digi Doodle Shop. The detail is amazing! I colored it with my Copics. I used pastel blues and pinks and followed the sketch from Moving Along with the Times, although I rotated the sketch. I used my new Tim Holtz paper and Coordinations. I love the new Tim Holtz paper. Note the music notes on it to correspond to the music of a carousel. I distressed the edges using the Tim Holtz distresser and tore around my image to distress and added lots of lace and pearls and flowers to give it an overall vintage feel and look. I hope you like it.
