Happy Wednesday! Wow! It is pretty clear that you all have been loving the new Dustin Pike ~ High Hopes Release! I know that we Divas have had a blast coloring up his images and sharing our creations. We have also had another big secret that we have been bursting to tell you all!
Melissa Jenkins is joining the HH family!
“We are so proud and excited to be welcoming Melissa Jenkins to the High Hopes family! If you are not already familiar with MelJen's Designs, you are in for a treat, as she has a very unique "girly girl" style with swirls and hearts and sweet little ladybugs accenting much of her work.”
Melissa’s designs are very unique and it was a real pleasure to color up and create with her sweet images. I chose this sweetie resting on a card for my sneak peek. The image was colored with Copic markers and I added some stickles to the hearts and outlined the stars and squiggles with my Atyou Spica pens. I played around with the layout and came up with this. The border around the center square is made with Martha Stewart punches and then I cut out a circle in the center that was larger than the image circle to create this fun look. I sponged the white cardstock with Baja breeze ink to soften it up. It still looked a little plain, so I added tiny adhesive pearls. Honestly it doesn’t take as long as you might think and I LOVE how it looks. A few primas flowers and the card was done!
If you would like to win a package of Meljen’s new stamps, please visit our High Hopes Blog to find out what to do. While you are there, you will see the list of the other Divas who will be showing sneak peeks! Our release day and blog hop will be this coming Friday!
