High Hopes Challenge #34

Good morning all;
I hope you are all having a great weekend.
It's time again for the High Hopes Challenge. This week is a fabulous sketch by our super talented Diva, Nikki.

We have had so much rain in the last few weeks and more in the forecast for this week I thought it would be fitting to use adorable " Willard Weather Ant".



I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I used my Inkssentials white pen for the highlights. I added some glossy accents to the rain drop and the puddle under his feet. The card has been embossed with a CB folder, as well as the yellow piece. I punched the flowers, layered them and added some white liquid pearls for the centers. I stamped 3 rain drops with black Stazon and printed the sentiment onto a piece of white shrink film and heated it. I also added some stickles.

I hope you have time to play along with us this week, for a chance win some fabulous High Hopes stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Have a great Sunday....

This is so well done! I love your coloring, as usual! The umbrella just glows! I love the extra touches like the cb embossing and rounded corners. And cute hand made punched flowers! It is bright and cheerful, which is the complete opposite of the weather we've been having! Ah well, the grass is doing well!
