Good morning everyone,
I hope your weekend is going well. Lots of rain for us the last few days but nice weather is on the way...or so they say!!
This weeks High Hopes challenge is brought to us by Kimmie and she has chosen "Christmas in July". These fabulous new release images are just perfect for a step card....and you know how I can't resist those step cards....lol!! The images I used are "Let us Adore Him", Three Kings", and Herald Angel".
I embossed all the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I used liquid applique on the little lamb. The horn,the trim on one of the wise men and the stars on the angels hair are all colored with Gelly Roll Metallic gold and I added glossy accents to the gems on the wise men. The angels wings were painted with glue and I added fine white glitter, I also added some stickles here and there. I tore and brushed some sand colored thick mulberry paper for the steps and added some raffia bows. I edged the sentiment with a Versa embossing pen and dipped it into gold embossing powder and heat set. I used my Inkssentials pen for the highlights.
Of all the step cards I have done, I think this one is my favorite so far. I hope you like it, too.
The High Hopes new release is in stock at The Rubber Room in London, Ontario or for your convenience you can shop online.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great Sunday....
