High Hopes Challenge 19

Hi and welcome to the high hopes weekly challenge which is sponging. The challenge is brought to us by the wonderfully talented Amy who is a genious with watercoloring. I love this challenge this week because I tend to use sponging quite a bit in my card making. I am happy that this week's challenge was fairly simple for me because next week's is a little trickier for me personally but I am looking forward to trying something new. Anyway, here is my card for you to see:

I used the sketch challenge on SCS for my layout. I colored my image with copics, cut it out and popped it up with foam dots. I sponged the rectangle that image sits on with blue ink while in the nestabilities. I added a tiny pearl to all the scallops.

stamps- high hopes baby dragon
CS- celery, bordering blue, white, cloud 9 dp
accesssories- circle and rect nesties, grosgrain ribbon, pearls, corner rounder punch, foam dots, copics (G21, G94, B21, B45)

Be sure to stop by the high hopes blog to see the rest of the awesome challenge cards by the divas and to check out the prize being offered this week to a random participant in the challenge.

Some pretty cool things going on this week:

Wed- Fri- sweet n sassy stamps blog hop
Wed- paper temptress intro party on PCP
Fri-sweet n sassy stamps release party

Hope you will visit here this week! Have a blessed day everyone.

Janette! I just love the coloring you did on the baby dragon. Love all the highlighting. It makes the image just glow! Esp. with the added sponging all around the panel too. The papers are sweet and I love what you did with the scallops, putting a sparkly dot on each one. Love how you tied that gorgeous ribbon too. Great idea to use this little guy on the sketch challenge on SCS too!
