Going back to my roots :)

Hi all and a happy Tuesday! :)

I haven't played around with flower clusters for a while and I thought this cute summery donkey would be a perfect character to drown in blooms. :)

This image is available from Stampavie blog to support and encourage Michelle who recently lost her eye in farm accident. There is a card drive going on for her at A Spoon Full Of Sugar blog.

I coloured my donkey in with Copic markers and sponged the edges slightly with Memento Desert Sand ink. The image and mat were cut out with Nestabilities deckled rectangles.
The papers are from Fancy Pants, embossed with a Sizzix folder and lightly sponged with white ink. Corrugated cardboard came with some packaging, I painted it with Tim Holtz crackle paint in Picket Fence and covered in white netting from my stash.

The sentiment is a rub-on from my stash, little roses are from Prima, the rest of the flowers from my stash. That lovely lacy border under the cardboard is a fabric sticker I got from my lovely friend Viv as a RAK. I have been blessed immensely with amazing, talented and kind people around me here in blogland.

Donkey: E29/37/15/99/97/35/33/41/13//30/11
hat:Yr23/24/12/, Y21/00/28
flowers: R05/02/30, RV42, YR16, Y35
