Dragon's Dream TIO # 91 - It's A Horse's Life
I recently read War Horses and that was the inspiration for this tag. The work horses that went to the front during World War One. The background is stormy sky and I added Deco Art Perfect Paper coloured with Walnut Stain to create the feel of the mud of the trenches. The barbed wire is a TH mask with Black Soot. The writing is a genuine Love Letter from Chocolate Baroque, written in 1861 by a soldier to his wife, printed on vellum. Finally the wonderful horse is a stamp from Artemio. He is stamped in Stazon. I added a faint echo of him to represent all those other horses. It is a book for children but as you may be able to tell I was greatly moved by it. Thanks for coming by to look, all your comments are much appreciated.
