Just a Play Day in the Studio!

I thought it would be fun to pull out a Hetty Clare image and play with some different coloring techniques!  It's always fun to play with these images since they truly represent what goes on over here.  Now, that being said, I don't wear lacy skirts with bling when I go out to the barn...hahaha
I do sometimes feel like stretching out for a nap out there!  ;)

Hetty Clare knows animals and country life!  She has the perfect images for so many situations I've encountered with my horses and they make me laugh every time!  Hetty Clare has a great way of turning awkward scenarios into a smile!

As for my different techniques, I combined the Hetty Clare Image with a  background from a past Kit and Clowder Class.  For more information about these classes go HERE.  The coloring of her skirt, sky and some patches of grass were done with a stamp from CTMH.  The stamp for her skirt had sort of a 'lacy' texture to it.  The stamp I used for the sky/grass had a dotted texture.  

My flower was embossed with different colors of powders.  It was fun to experiment with some different ideas.
