How about an Ostrich Ride?

Every time I see the Fantasy Ostrich Ride image I think of the great big carousel ride at our mall with lot of different animals to ride.  They have an ostrich there and I'm pretty sure I've accompanied one of my children on the ride at one time or another.  

I've been stumped as to how to color the ostrich and this time simplicity was the route I took.  I used the spotlighting technique for this card.  I chose some Regal Rose cardstock to make this image POP against the Donna Salazar paper I picked out.

I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge for this card along with some Mini Me Prima flowers and Hero Art gemstones.  I used an Aquapainter and ink to color the image.

Hope you enjoy my card for you today!

Kim, Thanks for 'reminding' me about spotlighting. We used to do it alot with the House Mouse stamps! I also like that you just didn't color the ostrich! Great job.
