High Hopes Challenge #39

Good evening everyone;
I hope you all had a great weekend. We looked after our DD's new puppy Jackson yesterday. You can't leave him alone outside for a minute by himself as he is in his digging stage and if you don't catch him at it quick he can make a real mess. Layla can't be bothered with him at all....she's probably thinking to herself... "he's such a brat"...lol!!

This weeks High Hopes challenge is brought to us by Anna and she has chosen "Upsy Daisy". She would like us all to use some daisies on our cards. I am using "Emileigh's Cool Ride" and "Road Trip" from the new release. Crissy has outdone herself with another release of amazing heartwork, every image is absolutely fabulous!!

I am back to the black/white mode with this one...but I couldn't stand it and had to add the red. I'm positive there won't be too many more...I just gotta have color!!...LOL!!



I embossed the image and the flowers with black and painted them with Tombows. I used glossy accents on the windshield, the small daisy centers and the tire centers. The large daisies are an older HH stamp and the small daisies are from the new potted plant stamp. I cut out the car and flowers and used my shaping tool to give the images some dimension. The bottom border is a MS punch. Where there was a cut out flower I added a daisy. I used my nesties for the frame. The silver on the bumpers and tires is a Gelly Roll metallic pen. Her jacket was painted with Tombow first and the Shimmerz - coal. It's hard to see the shimmerz but it looks great in RL. I embossed the sentiment onto acetate and used silicone to stick it down. The swirl was cut with a punch.

I hope you like it.

The HH's new release is available at The Rubber Room and on-line, all in stock and ready to go. Don't delay....they won't be there long!!

Thanks so much for stopping by....
