Wheelbarrow of Flowers

This week's Stamp Simply Challenge (ssnotime91) is Half Circles! We are to use a half circle in our sketch design. Well, my circle is a bit bigger than half, so I hope it counts!

All of the cardstock and decorator paper used in this design were from a Valentine Kit from Taylored Expressions Shop.

I used a Spellbinder's Nestabilities Circle and Circle Scallop for my circle, a Spellbinder's Label One for the image panel, and a Martha Stewart Border punch for the fencing.

I stamped my image (Stampin' Up Blooming with Love) onto PaperTrey Ink Stamper's Select White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored portions of the image with Copic markers, paper pieced the wheelbarrow body with dp, and used Sweet Pea and Nut Brown FlowerSoft to create beautiful texture and dimension. A BasicGrey Porcelain brad in the upper corner finishes off the design.
