Friday, February 27th

Hello High Hopes Fans

Today Michelle V and Jane have some inspiration to share with you.

The challenge runs through Monday, March 2nd. 

Michelle V

Hiya All!
The image today is from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  The actual Rubber Stamp is Bunny with Tulip.  

I used a new technique that I learned from an Online Class that I took.  The technique was to colour the image then use the colourless blender on a piece of fabric to remove some of the colouring to make it look like a stuffed animal.  It did not turn out the way I was hoping, it bled through so I actually made lemonade from lemons LOL  I cut out the image, used another one to glue the cut out image on...see how perfect the whiskers look? LOL.  And then thought, hmmmmmm for a bit more of a pop I will do another colouring of the tulip and vase and pop that up!  The effect was quite nice if I don't say so myself!  Geesh now thinking about it I should have popped up the feet too, maybe twice for the effect...Oh Well, next time I use this image!  I also curled the orange paper to a round effect so it looked more like a carrot for the bunny

The Copic Markers that I used are;

Bunny - E18, 17, 15
Bunny Ears/Feet/Nose - RV10, 21, 13
Vase - BG0000, 000 and R56, 37, 35
Tulip - V17, 15, 12
Leaves - R56, YR04, YG67, YG17, YG03
Sky - BG0000, 000
Shadow/Table - E42, W2, W0

The items that I used to create my card are;

BackGround Paper from One Crazy Stamper

On hand I used the Orange and Green Cardstock, the Green Thread (for the carrot top), Ribbon.  Not sure where all these were bought from I have had them for years LOL.  Common I know your saying the same things LOL

Thanks for popping in to see my creation!  I look forward to seeing what you complete for our Challenge this month.


This is Party Girl Florence

Sure hope everyone is keeping warm these days!  Maybe this "party girl" will heat things up!
I coloured Florence with Tombow Markers and water, then sponged some pink and blue ink around the image.  Glossy Accents were used on the balloons, and frosted lace stickles on her pearl necklace. I used a wave die(on blue vellum), and palm tree die for an added touch to this card. The designer paper is from Carta Bella-Summer Lovin'.  A few YNS - green glitter gumdrops were placed in the top corners to finish it off. 

Hope this inspires you to create a card and join us for this month's "Anything Goes" Challenge! 
Thanks for joining us!!!  Have a wonderful weekend!
