High Hopes Challenge #2

Remember to post a comment on THIS post if you have not already for your chance to win a stamp set from H&M Stamps. There are only 2 more days to enter and don't forget to check out the other DT members blogs because they have candy posted too.

This is my first high hopes challenge that I participated in as a diva. I was so excited and intimidated at the same time because the divas are just all so talented and I was afraid that my work would pale in comparison. Anyway, the challenge was to use brown, blue and green. You check out the details and the other divas samples HERE.



I colored my image which was stamped on watercolor paper with an aquapainter and inkpads, markers, shimmerz and twinkling H2Os. This was my first time using H2Os and I love them. They have a little bit sparkle and are so vibrant. I accented the flower on her hat with a rhinestone. The layout I used was the sketch challenge from world card making day on SCS. Here is a closer look for you:




Supplies:
stamps- High Hopes Jolie's little friend
CS- PTI spring moss, choc chop, bashful blue textured, watercolor
ink- palette noir, choc chip
accessories/tools- SU markers and inkpads, twinkling H2Os (majestic blue, chestnut brown, cedar wood, spiced pumpkin), pink shimmerz, brown brads, paper piercer, choc chip grosgrain ribbon


Enjoy the rest of your day and thank you for coming by,
