MFP Blog Hop Regal and Proud-DAY THREE

For Day Three of the MFP blog hop I am featuring the mountain scene
along with the large eagle.

I used an EK edger punch for the black strip and colored the scene
with Copic markers.  I stamped the large eagle in a light
grey to convey more of an eagle spirit than an actual bird.

Please comment to get your name in for the drawing for a free stamp set and then go to the other blogs and do the same.  You will find all the links below:

Well first I read your comment on the Rose Petal Blog, and now I look at this and wonder how ANYTHING you do could look "like the dog did it." It's genius enough, putting the eagle in the background. But the way you ghosted it is just perfection.

Thanks for sharing such talent
