Altering...again...

Have I mentioned yet that I love all things magical and fantastical? I bet you would have never guessed huh? ;)
I think I have my Grandpa to thank for that. When I was little he would buy me those cheap plastic jewelry sets that they used to sell, I would put on my "princess" jewels and then he would sit me down and weave tales of Neapolitan ice cream eating princesses, trouble making fairies and all sorts of other characters. And my fascination only grew from there...
All of that to say this little card is my homage to Disney's Fantasia, something I first watched way back when and fell in love with. I especially loved the section about the centaur girls and the little cupids helping them to find their special centaur guy... awww... classic. :)
That and the Shimmers dolls, did anyone else own any of those back in the 80's? Little centaur mommas and a matching baby? Oh man I totally wore mine out I played with them so much!
Anyway enough reminiscing, I altered mermaid Anya and the digi unicorn stamp from TGF to make her and it really didn't take as much changing as you would think. I simply wiped away her tail before stamping and cut her out at the torso then layered her over the unicorn. Voila!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope everyone has a great Monday. I'm off to the 'big city' to look at some scanners... :)

These altered pieces of yours are just too cool. You really do a fantastic job of matching your drawings to what you are given with Anya.

Perfect card... subtle and simple really make Anya the focus. Nice!!
