High Hopes Sneak peek!!!

I am so excited!! Tomorrow is a new high hopes release and can I just tell you that it is filled with such awesome adorable images. I know that they all are but seriously, you are in for a treat. I decided to show you my favorite image from this release. One of the reasons it is my favorite is because I had a little to do with the inspiration behind the image. I asked Crissy to draw a girl playing dress up with too big of shoes and a boa and she certainly delivered! Thanks Crissy, I totally love how you made the idea in my mind come to life on paper- love you!!!

So without further ado I give you:

I colored my image with copics. I was thrilled to find some sparkly fibers at my stamp store and I just new it would be perfect for the boa- what do you think? Her necklace was accented with liquid pearls, the hat was accented with stickles on the band and a rhinestone in the center of the flower.

closer look:

stamps- High hopes dress up
CS- GP white, Paper Temptress pink lemonade pop tones and eclipse black, PTI plum pudding
copics- RV10, RV14, E50, E00, R20, V12, V15, V17, C7, C9, black, E31, E33
accessories- pink sparkly fibers, pink rhineston, purple rhinestone brads, black primas, SU scallop punch, stickles, satin ribbon

The new releases will be up on the high hopes site some time during the wee hours of the morning so be sure to check out all the fabulous new on the high hopes web site. In the meantime visit the high hopes blog to see a list of the rest of the divas who have peeks to share with you.

Thanks for coming by today. Stop back tomorrow for the high hopes weekly challenge. Have a great day!

Hugs and blessings,
