"Wild Thing" - High Hopes Ch#19 - Stamp Something and SC216 Sketch

High Hopes Challenge #19 is brought to us by the very talented Amy and she would like to see sponging on your card or project. Check out the HHChallenge blog to see all the Fabulous creations the Divas have made. Join this Fun Challenge and you will have a chance to win these two fabulous HH stamps First Ride and the Wonderful Adventures sentiment!!

The Fabulous stamps I used for this card are all from High Hopes and are "Alberts Gift" - "Abigail" - "Wild Thing" - "Perched Birdie" - "Landing Birdie" and "Tree Element".

I also made this card to participate in the Stamp Something Challenge which is to made something 3D. For the layout I used the SC216 sketch (great sketch)

All images are colored with Prismacolor pencils (oms) and H20's. I continued the sentiment into the inside........I am not very good at decorating the inside of a card...but gave it a shot anyway.

The top part of the tree (leaves) are sponged with 2 different green inks.......SU Old Olive and SU Certainly celery. I also sponged the edges of the sentiment with SU creamy caramel ink.

The tree is masked and the background is brushed on with SU bashful blue, creamy caramel and close to cocoa inks.

Most of the images on the card are pop dotted...the dragons, flowers, birds, sentiment....and the whole panel. There is glitter on the dragon wings, flowers and Abigails bow.

I used nesties for the scallops (two pieces made and taped together to make a larger rectangle)...and a Martha Stewart punch for the fancy borders.

The raffia lace on the narrow panel behind the scene is lace I received from Bernie last year...I love this stuff!! Thank you so much Bernie!!

Paper - Georgia Pacific white, Treasures CS, K&Company

Ink - versafine black, bashful blue, creamy caramel, close to cocoa, certainly celery, old olive

Accessories - ribbon, dew drop pearls, raffia lace, stitching, MS punch, nesties

Sorry I have been so late with posting......I have had a busy week. We have a ton of snow here....and have been trying to move some of it away from the house. We have more snow and cool temperatures expected this week. There is No sign of Spring here!!!

Have a Great Day Everyone!... and Thank You So Much for all your Fabulous comments!!!
