rainbow freckles + giveaway

have you heard of rainbow freckles? its a makeup trend that someone much younger and cooler showed me.

-instgram@jessicaaa_mua via self

and while i think i might be a little past rocking rainbow freckles, i found them pretty inspiring:
to create my rainbow freckled card, i cut a circle from masking paper and applied the mask to the front of my card.

then i used the smallest dot stamp from the essentials by ellen bokeh dots to stamp around the circle mask.

i stamped one color at a time and while it was a little time consuming, it was relaxing too. then finished my card with a sentiment in the middle, some watercolor butterflies and a few clear sequins.

now about the rainbow week giveaway!!! 
some lucky person is going to win a $25 gift certificate to ellen hutson llc. all you have to do is leave a comment between today and friday. the winner will be drawn on saturday, march 12th.

happy tuesday!

xo,
carly
