"Thinking of You" and "High Hopes Sneak Peek!!"

The sweet little girl on this card is "Little Missy" ..and the cute little puppy is called "Scotty Dog" and you can find them both at High Hopes Rubber Stamps

The lovely paper I used for the background is a goodie from Crissy Armstrong and the sweet little smile charm is from Tina (owner of High Hopes)...Thanks so much Crissy and Tina.

I used SC165 sketch for this card.Images are colored with prismacolor pencils (OMS) and H20's.

Stamps: High Hopes, Studio G for sentiment

Paper: whisper white, dcwv glitter, dcwv textured, wild asparagus, making memories

Ink: versafine black, close to cocoa, bashful blue, buckaroo blue

Accessories: ribbon, cord, charm, bling, stickles, stitching, stardust pen

Oh Ila ~ This card is just adorable. You have really enabled me to buy more High Hopes Stamps, which is why you are a DT member anyway, so you can be glad that you are doing your job so well. I hope to post my Hoppy Easter in the near future, for a first timer, I think they (yes, I did 2) turned out pretty good. Oh how glad I am that I came upon your site. Have a wonderful day !

all your coloring, i dont know what to say.

ila, when you make the background do you sponge it or do you also watercolor it. what is the best way to start when you watercolor it. first the background and the grounding and than start coloring the image???
