Good morning everyone;
I hope you are all having a great weekend so far. I think the weather has finally made a turn, we are expecting some very hot days this week. The A/C will be running full blast!!
It's time for this weeks High Hopes Challenge. This weeks challenge is brought to you by Jeanne and she has chosen "Use up those scraps". I have been wanting to try a new to me technique and what a perfect time to do so...thanks Jeanne!!
I am using the adorable "Mildred" on my card.
I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I stamped, embossed and cut out another pie top and layered it. The highlights have been done with my Inkssentials pen. For the new to me technique I used a piece of double sided adhesive sheet. I stuck it down onto a piece of white card stock, cut the pieces of dp and stuck them on like a mosaic. When it was complete I covered it with white glitter. The glitter stuck to the spaces between the pieces. I used my MS doily punch for the border and my EK Success punch for the border behind it. I used my nesties for the ovals. The sentiment is stamped with black Stazon onto a piece of shrink film and shrunk down. I also tried my hand at some scruffy flowers. They are fun to make, I was happy with the result. The fern is a MS punch.
I hope you will have time to play along with us this week. Don't forget to stop by the High Hopes blog and check out the fabulous creations of the other HH Diva's.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
Have a great Sunday....
