High Hopes - Sneaks Cont.... :-)


The sneak peeks continue today for the new High Hopes release this coming Wednesday!!! Today my card features Cherry Chip Chimp with sentiment Cherry on top! Is this little guy adorable or what! I am having so much fun colouring these new images by Artist Dustin Pike!

My sweet little Chimp is stamped in Memento and coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I have added a little stickles to the cupcake sprinkles and cherry as well as a little to the flat black pearls. The gorgeous papers are from the MME Stack Laundry Line. This stack is shabby chic with antique and distressed prints. The colours from this collection are soft and muted and some of the paper have an intense scattering of glitter. I have rubbed all the edges down with my handy VersaMagic Jumbo Java chalk. Again I have added a scrap of Raffia Lace left over from an earlier project.

I'll be back tomorrow to share another sneak with you but please do hop on over to see the fabulous creations from my fellow Diva's who are also sneaking today!


I think you all know by now ;-) but all new release stamps will be available to purchase on Wednesday at Bunny Zoe's Crafts!!!

Do you want to win a package bursting with new release stamps? Of course you do :-) Then we would love you to help us spread the news about our blog hop and release on Wednesday 20th January. Be sure to check out the High Hopes blog here.

Have a great day!

Hugs,
