Over last weekend I found out I was one of the lucky randomly drawn winners of a blog hop.  The prize I won was donated by Darnell, and I wanted to send her a thank you for donating the prize which ended up in my happy hands.

I spent most of last weekend playing with Clearly Besotted's Giving Thanks stamp set, and I loved the sunflower option.

I started with the wheelbarrow, added the flowers and masked that all off. I used the Hero Arts Large Lotus stencil with some scattered straw distress ink across the whole panel in a light to dark inking. The image was colored with copic makers.  The sentiment was stamped with versfine vintage sepia ink.  The card base is from Stampin up and the sequins are from A Muse -- each of the 4 mm sequins packets is a mix of light medium and dark shades of the color chosen.  I liked that that matched my inking.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

LOVE the stenciling around the wheelbarrow.Great coloring, too.

YAY on your win. I won a random draw at MFT this week. I thanked them for drawing my number. Is that weird? I felt I needed to thank them somehow for the gift certificate.
