Meet...Guest artist...Sarah Drayton...a winner & a new contest!

Sarah was one of the lucky gals to win a Stampers Anonymous stamp. Here's what she created, using her new stamp & her Maya Road chipboard prize. Don't you just love it? GREAT job Sarah!! THANKS for sharing!!

Here's the info Sarah sent, if you'd like to try something similiar...

I created a piece with my fab new stamp and gorgeous chipboard book. *

I used Gesso and Ranger Acrylic Dabbers in Hazelnut and Snowcap for the background, building up a few layers until I acheived my desired effect.*

I then stamped the flourish stamp into the background using Adirondack Ink in Expresso.*

Then using some more Acrylic paint to soften stamped Image.*

Next I added the PaperWhimsy image and spritzed with Glimmer Mists in Antique Brass.

Hope you like what I have created. I love stopping by to see you on your blog.

Look @ this sweetie...This is Callie, Kate's dog. See how she smiled for the camera? For those who love dogs, she's a shilo shephard.

Now for the drawing by Rick... I was told to leave the room & he would read the comments & make his choice...He said her blogname got his attention...

And the winner of the sheer card I created for the Hero Arts blog is...
