High Hopes New Release Blog Hop

Hello Everyone....

It has been quite a while since I have posted here...but
 I am glad to be back!!!

For today's  blog hop I am sharing a card I created 
for High Hopes new release....
"Joys of the Seasons"

If you have arrived here from Lora's blog you are going
 in the right direction.....

The image I am using is

I created an easel card for this adorable Frankie!! 
embossed the image with black onto watercolor paper. 
I embossed and colored some extra bats, cut them
out and layered them. 

I used Doodle Bug papers from the Halloween Parade 
paper pad. Some ribbon from my stash and some
black gum drops. The drippy goo is a Martha Stewart
punch and the sentiment is on a tag die from 

The marker colors I have used are.....
          043- Olive green
        091- Light Gray
           084-  Deep Violet
    070- Orange
   010- Black 
        095-Dark Gray
           062- Dark Brown
          061-Light Brown

I have just started using these markers and they 
are really amazing!! For those of you who know me 
I am a a true Tombow marker fan (and I will 
continue to use them) but I am totally 
impressed with the new Zigs!!! 

I hope you have fun hopping along 
and your  next stop is........
