If I knew how to add two or more photos and put the text under each one, I would rather do that than post twice. But when I tried once, I could get two photos but they were one after another, even when I wrote the text between them in the Posting section. If anyone knows how post several photos and have the text remain beneath each one, let me know.
But anyhoo, there is another challenge going on at the High Hopes Blog and I am the one who chose the theme. I decided it would be fun to get us all making Christmas cards that used non-traditional colors. I told the Divas they could use red and green but only sparingly, like for a Santa hat, a candy cane, or green for a tree or holly. But other than that, you have to make a Christmas card without red or green predominating. I thought of this fish right away and wanted to make a card using mostly orange and blue. I think he's pretty funny with a fuzzy turquoise Santa hat on!
I used Copics to color the fish and hat, and I borrowed Jeanne's ideas on how to sponge ink on the background for sky, or in this case, water. Thanks Jeanne!
The great news is, if you want to play along, you can join the High Hopes Challenge 6 and have a chance to be selected randomly to win two free stamps from High Hopes! AND the High Hopes Hop is also on again this afternoon! To play that and have ANOTHER chance to win a whole new set of stamps, get hopping through the links of Divas' BLOGS (not SCS galleries) that I have on my right side bar until you find out who it is today (but not til later this aft!). EDIT: The Diva doing the HH Blog Hop got delayed in posting, but it will be up by evening sometime... sorry about that! Life happens to all of us!
Thanks for dropping by!
