High Hopes Hullabaloo surprise 2nd peek for today!



I was not planning on doing this, but yesterday's sketch challenge at SCS was too good to pass up! So you are getting another sneaky peekie from me today, so suprise!
The flower and bee are separate stamps. I cut out the darker flower and bee and pasted them overtop the first lighter flower I had stamped and colored. I used Nestability Deckled Rectangle die to cut out a piece of cardstock and used that as a mask for the edges of the main image. I sponged the purple color using the edge of that mask, just laying it along the side. Some guesswork involved there, to get it even all the way around, but it worked out ok.
I used a purple gel pen to do the doodling.
Scroll down to my first post from earlier to see the links to the other Divas who are showing off the peeks for the upcoming release (Sunday!).
