Good morning! A new weekly challenge is now up on the high hopes blog. This week the challenge is hosted by Katharina and she has an awesome sketch for us! She always comes up with terrific sketches and this one is no exception. Here is the sketch and my sample for you:
My image was stamped and colored with copic markers. I added glitter to the wings and rhinestones to the crown and wand. I colored the rhinestones on the crown and the flowers with a copic marker- my new little trick LOL. I forgot to highlight her cheeks with a white gel pen like I usually do- oh well. I had also wanted to sew on my card but it was late when I was making it so I decided to skip that this time.
stamps-high hopes fairy princess and sentiment
CS- PTI berry sorbet, sweet blush and white
accessories- sorbet satin ribbon, rhinestones, glitter, bridal flowers, copics (R20, R22, R24, E50, E00, E21, E33, E35, E37, BG10)
A random name will be chosen from among the participants of this week's sketch challenge to win an image stamp and sentiment from high hopes. You can find out all the details for the challenge, see the prize, and check out the other divas' amazing samples on the BLOG. There is also going to be an exciting announcement made tomorrow if you are interested in becoming a guest designer for high hopes so stay tuned.
This card is also for my fellow diva Kim Reid's birthday challenge. It was her birthday this week too and she is celebrating with a week of challenges with PRIZES so be sure to check out her blog too.
Speaking of prizes you have until tomorrow morning to enter for my birthday blog candy drawing on the post directly below today's so be sure to check it out if you have not already.
I want to take a minute to share my excitement with you all today. My very first publication is on sale now so it is official- I am in print, woo hoo!! To add to the excitement, my good friend Michelle (sf9erfan) is also in the magazine and it was her first publication too. It is really cool to be able to share that together. We are in the March/April 2009 issue of Papercrafts magazine so I hope you will check it out if you have a chance. My card is on pg. 44 and Michelle's is on pg. 40. Below is the magazine cover and my card that is in it.
I hope you will stop by tomorrow for the mojo Monday sketch and to see if you have won my blog candy. I am very happy as my sample is already done for tomorrow so I don't have to scramble today trying to get it done LOL. I guess it is a good thing as we are having Lindsey's birthday party today- should be fun!
Have a great day and thanks for visiting,
