High Hopes Challenge #2!!


Well, it's time for the second week of challenges over at the High Hopes Blog! All the creations that you gals have posted have been amazing and I'm so excited that you are joining in!! And yesterday was World Cardmaking Day but I'm celebrating all weekend long ('cause I had to work yesterday), and you can too with another fun HH challenge!

This week's challenge is a colour challenge, which I admit, I sometimes have trouble with. The challenge is to use blue, green, brown and a neutral on your card. This time I did things a little backward to what I normally do. For this challenge I found a piece of dp that had the right colour combo in it and THEN I went and found a stamp that I thought would go with the dp, instead of the other way around.

I found this Three Bugs in a Rug dp that had the right colours in it and then I picked out Gavin the Givin' Dragon to use on my card. I of course, coloured him in using my Copic markers and used my circle Nestabilities to cut him out. While he was still in the nestie, I sponged some Bashful Blue ink around him to make a sky. Now I'm not so good with the sponging yet, it's not a smooth as I would like.




The card base is a 6x6 Chocolate Chip square, matted with Very Vanilla and then the dp, attached with Basic Grey brads. The scalloped circle matting is Sage Shadow and then I stamped a couple of the balloons on Bashful Blue cardstock and cut them out. I attached them to the card and drew some strings to Gavin's hand so that he could hold them. Then I stamped the sentiment on vanilla and he's all done!!

Head on over to the HH Blog and check out what the other Divas have done for the challenge and then be sure to join in the fun!! Get those HH stamps inky!!!

This card is so cute. I love the little dragon. It makes me think of Puff the magic dragon. I don't know why.
