Emileighs Cool Ride

Our challenge this week over at A Spoon Full of Sugar is the theme Travel. What a perfect time to ink up my High Hopes Emileighs Cool Ride. The Rode trip sentiment is also High Hopes. I stock a good selection of the new release High Hopes stamps in my store. The papers used on my card are Basic Grey Lemonade which I have also used to paper piece Emileighs card. I have also used the wonderful sketch over at Sketch Saturday this week. The scalloped edge was created with an SU punch. I have added tiny buttons from the Victorian range. My image is coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I have also added a light washing of Sakura stardust to the metal and window screen.




Our wonderful sponsor this week is Sandra of Sandra Dry Digi Stamps. Sandra is offering 6 single images from her site for our lucky winner.

Our wonderful and very talented guest joining us this week is Iris. Be sure to visit Iris at her blog.

We're off to Legoland Windsor today so looking forward to a fun day out. Just hope it isn't ruined by the dreaded M25!

Hugs,
