Best Day Ever
I am guest designing with High Hopes stamps for the next three months. I had the opportunity to design for them in the past so I'm excited to catch up with everyone and, of course, the images are so cute! Every other Tuesday, there is a challenge over on the High Hopes blog. This week's challenge is Stars and Stripes (use stars and/or stripes on your card). I used this adorable image called Time Well Spent.
I used some patterned papers from the Campfire paper pad from October Afternoon. I stamped my image on copic x-press it cardstock with tuxedo black memento ink and colored it with copic markers. I die cut the image with a rectangle nestability die.
I used these copic markers to color my image: E33, E35, E37, E29, E55, E57, E59, R46, R89, T5, Y35, E00, E11, E21, B95, B97, B99, T7, T9, BG000, BG01, B0000, B000, colorless blender.
I sponged antique linen and tea dye distress inks arounds the edges of my patterned papers, image, and sentiment. Then, I added some stitching, black buttons, and charcoal baker's twine. I adhered my image and sentiment with foam adhesive. Isn't that such a great sentiment! It's from Catslife Press.
Hop on over to the High Hopes blog to see what the rest of the ladies created and to join in the challenge. Have a great day!
