Wings of Hope for Haiti

There is still lots of time to enter my huge blog candy give-away with tons of RUBBER STAMPS and other prizes from SEVEN stamp companies PLUS, a set of COPICS, a MS PUNCH, and a SPELLBINDER DIE! Please scroll down to the post below this one for the details!
And don't forget, all proceeds from the sale of this digital image, "Wings of Hope" (minus the Paypal fees) are going to help the Red Cross disaster relief in Haiti.  For only $4.00,  you get an image you can use, and you help Haiti with their recovery from the massive earthquake!  Click here to purchase it from the Whimsy store.
I coloured "Wings of Hope" with the following Copics:
W1, 2, 3, 5, 7
R000, 00
R27, 59
B21, 41,
BG0000, 000, 10, 11, 13, 96
After colouring with Copics, I used white acrylic paint to add spots on the horse and feathers on the wings.
I covered the entire image with two coats of Ultra Thick Embossing Powder.
Thanks to so many people who have purchased this image already, we have raised over seven hundred dollars so far!  Let's keep it going!
