Hanna Stamps Guest Designer Call Round 2 Project #2


Today is the day we are to post our second project for the Hanna Stamps Guest Designer Call. I still can't believe I was one of the finalists! It's such a fun opportunity. I love Hanna Stamps with all their great Hanna images and the sweet Riley's and Sophie's!

When I saw this image, one of the first things that popped into my head was an old fashioned scene. You know how in the older movies, maybe more the older westerns, you would always see the cowboys soaking in a big ole bath tub after their long ride on the range and the little chambermaid with her boobs pushed up as high as they would go in her little outfit would be pouring buckets of hot water into the tub!! Well that is the image that came to my head when I saw this Riley image. So I thought how could I make it look old fashioned? Then I thought I could use the Sepia technique to make it look old fashioned. I think it turned out pretty good actually. I'll admit it looks way better in real life. It's hard to get a good picture that shows the lightened highlights of the technique.

Hope you like it!


Today I am thankful for my stampin' friends. I got together with my girls last night and we always have so much fun.....even when we have to use our brains and think and work!!!!!


Chow for now,

Jacqui

I loved the story and yes I can see the bathtub time after a long ride. The other stamp elements are so much fun too.
