This weeks High Hopes challenge challenge is brought to us by the wonderfully talented Crissy. She would like us all to use Lots and Lots of Polka Dots!! You can use dotted papers, dots on your images, use your circle punches to make dots, even your embossing folders! Just make sure you've got some polka dots on your creations!!
My new MME Bloom and Grow were just perfect for this challenge. As well as having a few dotty designs, I love the fact that some of the papers in this pack are embossed too for some added texture.
This cute fella is called sweet little thing and I have used sentiment Cuppy Cake. My little bug friend and his huge cupcake is stamped in Memento and coloured in Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I added some Sakura stardust to my frosting for a subtle sparkle. I do this by applying it to an acrylic block then sweeping off the stardust with a damp brush. I then added a little stickles to the candle and sweeties. You can see the shimmer better in the angled picture below.
I stamped my sentiment in Versafine as I prefer this ink for a more crisper finish. Once dry I then used my SU Word window punch to cut out the sentiment. Other punches used: SU Ticket corner punch and Horizontal slot punch (thanks Jakki x). The ribbon and flower brads were from my stash and the little brads in the corners are also SU.
Before I go I would also like to say hi to our super talented new guests Sirpa and Danielle. Be sure to check out the teams fabulous creations this week.
Have a great Sunday and i'll be back again later today with sneaky peak at a new Hanna set.
