I told you it was coming!! The High Hopes Hullabaloo is here! For the next three days, you will get to see sneak peeks by me and some of my fellow Diva darlin's for April's brand new release! Check out more sneak peeks at the following blogs:
The whole release will be unveiled and uploaded into the High Hopes catalogue in the Hot Off The Press section starting just after midnight, in the early morning hours of Sunday April 19th!!
I couldn't wait to show you this card I made. It is rather dear to my heart and I'll tell you why... Back in February, one of our guest Divas, Nicole, broke her leg. She wrote about it on her blog and we were all feeling very badly for her. I was in the middle of working on this release and was drawing some bugs. I knew I wanted to do a stamp in her honor, to cheer her up from having such a trauma, and to let her know we were all thinking of her. I suddenly got this idea to show a centipede who had broken one of his many legs. Not to make light of her pain, but to find a way to identify with her in it, and at the same time, make her laugh!
I sent her this card weeks ago, but told her to keep it a secret, as it was for this release. I was happy to learn that she did feel very proud that a stamp was made in her honor! And she loved this card too! This little guy's name is Cole.
I colored him with Copics and added highlights with white acrylic paint. Sorry, I can't remember the name of the papers I used, my bad. The sentiment is hand written (obviously). Here is the list of Copic colors:
And a close-up of my coloring:
Stay tuned for another installment of the High Hopes Hullabaloo Friday!!!
Thanks for looking and for visiting my blog today! God bless you!
