High hopes challenge #8

This week's high hopes challenge is to use both buttons and brads on your project. If you play along with us you have a chance to win some stamps. Here is my card for the challenge.



I colored Santa with copics and used a spica glitter pen on his beard and hair and applied liquid applique sprinkled with glitter on the trim of the hat. The image was sponged with artichoke ink while still in the nestability die.



Supplies:
stamps- high hopes Santa portrait
CS- artichoke, basic grey wassail
accessories- artichoke buttons, brads, copics, liquid applique, glitter, spica glitter pen, nestabilities, moss taffeta


Be sure to check out what the other divas have done on the high hopes blog- they are absolutely gorgeous!!
