It's time for our weekly 'Slinky Tarts' inspirational post. This week I have used another of Tamara's older images 'Barn Brat'  Tamara has been busy drawing again this week, make sure you pop over to the store & check out her new sketches!

Not sure how well you can see the horses mane & tail. It was a very happy accident. I was colouring his tail & picked up the wrong coloured pencil, didn't notice until I had coloured some of it in. So I then had to add the burgundy/purple tint to his mane as well lol!
