I found this (along with lots of awesome High Hopes stamps) in my mailbox. Crissy and Tina (Owner of High Hopes) sent them to say thanks for showcasing their stamps on my Prismacolor Pencil tutorial.....and all I have to say is WOW! (totally unnecessary but totally appreciated!)
THANK YOU Tina and Crissy! What a wonderful surprise.
Here is Crissy's card---Isn't she AMAZING!?!??! Her work/illustrations always take my breath away!
Although I really hate posting a card after that one---I am gonna do it anyway. I had to create a card using the new rubber---so I took some time to play a little!
This card was very simple to make. I used the palm tree stamp and stamped it in olive for the background. The darling boy is stamped in Brilliance black ink and I used JUST A FEW (6!) prismacolor pencils to color him in. Just goes to show you that you don't have to have tons to be able to color images. (For this one I used Raw Umber, Prussian Green, Beige, Black, Phinaio Ylw. Grn. Hue, Light Peach.) That is it!
I sponged the background with olive and bashful blue and distressed the edges. Whola! Done and it didn't take long to do.
Gotta love this fella---What a cutie! Check out the High Hopes site for lots more FANTASTIC stamps!
