Our challenge this week over at the High Hopes blog is called Fuzzy Feeling! We would like you to add some fuzzy texture to your cards. This could be felt, fibres, fun flock, pom pom ribbon etc...
You may remember seeing these character for the High Hopes sneak peaks a couple of weeks ago. They are part of March's POTM set. For the month of March you can buy this special set of stamps for 25% off. This set will include: Farmer Clem, Miss Peggy, Farm Background and sentiment "Everywhere a Oink"
Now these won't be up in the website just yet, so if you'd like to order them RIGHT AWAY, just contact Tina HERE and let her know!!!
Now a little about my card. The images are coloured with Prismacolour pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. The sky was created by masking the Farm background and using a copic airbrush. The cute little picket fence is a Marth Stewart Punch - thank you Heidi! I did tear and layer the grass but this doesn't show well in the photo. I think next time I would add a little chalk to the edges just to make the layers more visible - still learning everyday! Before glueing my characters in place I added fibre for a little more texture and interest. I'm really pleased with how this turned out.
I received the above award from Lora. Thanks you sweetie!
