Donkey Smiles for Michelle

A Spoonful of Sugar and two of Whimsy Stamps lovely Artists Melissa Jenkins and Ann Vento have teamed up together to help support Michelle Oatman who had a bad accident on June 23rd leaving her without an eye and many surgeries in the future.  These artists designed a donkey image and sentiments free to us:)  Thank you Ladies!!!    Go Here to find the image!!!

Isn't this just the cutest Donkey.  Colored with TH Distress inks on strathmore watercolor paper.  Used sketch from All That Scraps!  Image was printed twice and layered using foam tape

Close up of cutey!!  On image below you will be able to see the Beeswax Shimmerz I used to outline donkey:)   Heat embossed inner ears and footsies with Bubblegum scented gelly powder. Diamond glaze gave shine to nose, eyes and cheek. Litely paint background with sky blue shimmerz for sparkle--hard to see.  Viva decor pens, stickles and multiliner pens finished the embellishments:)
