This weeks High Hopes Challenge is brought to us by the Wonderful Jeanne...and she has created a Fabulous and Fun Sketch for us all to use. Be sure to check out the High Hopes Challenge Blog to see Gorgeous cards the Divas have made. Join in the challenge and you could win some really cute HH stamps!
The name of the High Hopes stamp I've used on this card is called "Summer Sweetness". Could this name be any more perfect? The sentiment on this card is created on the computer...but High Hopes has a sentiment perfect for this image..."You're one in a Melon".
I used copics and prismacolor pencils to color this card. I also used H20's to deepen the shade. The little detail dots are made with a stylus using acrylic white paint.
Nesties were used for the circles (how did I ever do anything without them?...lol).
The lace flower was created by gathering a small amount of lace and tying it off to form a circle. I borrowed this idea from the very talented Bev.....here is her card and instructions. Be sure to check out her blog..."All things I love"...her creations are Amazing!!
Ink - versafine black, bashful blue, mellow moss
Paper - GP white, MME, always artichoke, treasures CS
Accessories - brads, buttons, flowers, lace, ribbon, glitter, stitching, SU punch, nesties, computer, shimmerz, ghost flower, embroidery floss
I hope everyone is enjoying some lovely spring weather. Although it hasn't been really warm here....it is fairly nice. I had hoped the snow would be gone by Easter...but we still have quite a bit...especially in our backyard.
It's going to be a great Easter for us.....all our kids are coming home!! Trina is on holidays and will be down on Wednesday ....Yay!! It's going to be so good to see her. We're hoping to get a little time for stamping....and do a ton of visiting.....I even have the swing all cleaned up in the backyard ready for our morning coffee and tea breaks.
Thank you Everyone for your Wonderful comments!!... My birthday is in a month....so there is going to be blog candy again in the very near future!!
Just in case I don't post again till after Sunday.....I wish you all a Very Happy and Blessed Easter!!
