Day 2 of Hullabaloooooo!!! Woo-hoooo!

This is the second day of the High Hopes Hullabaloo, and if you don't know what all the hullabaloo is about, its the upcoming new release of rubber goodness, slated to be revealed in the early morning hours of Sunday, April the 19th EST! That's when Tina and Bethany will start filling up the catalogue with all the new images. Until then, you are getting teased with sneak peeks from me and some of my fellow Divas!! Here are links to their blogs (allow for time differences, so if you don't see anything right away, check back a little later, k?)
Nikki's four yr. old daughter Danni (ok, not a Diva, but must be included!!)
And Nikki's older daughter Zoe has a sneak peek sample card too!

I created this card awhile ago and forgot to take a pic of the colors I used, sorry! I do remember a few from my head: I know I did the gopher 's fur using E 71, E74 and E77. I used a very light rosey shade for his cheeks and used the colorless blender to blend it in. Other than the yellows on the hat, I also used a cool grey to make a shadow on the left side, I think C4.
The jeans are B21, B23, B24, and I think B97 in the darkest shadows. The ground is a mix of E's, with a splash of blue and red on a few of the pebbles for some color. That's all I can remember folks, I'll try to keep track next time!

Tomorrow will be another preview of the release so stay tuned!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment!
Bless you!
