High Hopes Challenge - Little Gem

Happy Sunday! This weeks High Hopes challenge is hosted by me :-) My challenge is called Little Gem and I would simply love to see gems or pearls used on your cards or paper projects.

You could add some to the corners of your cards or you can see on the High Hopes blog that some of our Diva's have got very creative!

Remember to enter our challenges you need to use High Hopes Rubber Stamps!!!

The random winner of this challenge will receive the below stamp - Bubble Bath Bradley. You just have to see Melanie's fabulous card using Bradley this week!

Now a little about my card.... the fun image is called Alien Intrigue. I cannot take credit for adding the little gem under his Magnifying stand.. this was my hubbies idea!

My Alien Intrigue is coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I did colour this little guy with copics but am not brave enough to show you this version... still some more practice with my blending!

I have used the fabulous sketch from Friday Sketchers. The Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride papers are just perfect for this stamp don't you think? Again it was my clever hubbie who spotted the molecule design while I was flicking through my pad! The sentiment is also High Hopes and to finish have added... yes, more gems!

Hope you can play along with us this week and be sure to check out the fabulous samples from the rest of the gang! If you are looking to purchase High Hopes stamps to play along be sure to check out the selection I have over in my store.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Beautifully done Nikki! Your coloring is superb with the Prismas and I can't image that your coloring with the Copics is any different! I can't wait to see what you come up with! :D
