High Hopes - Have I TOAD you...
This week I went for one of my first ever High Hopes Stamps - I have used this image many many times over the years, and always get a grin while using it -
This "Froggy Gift" paired up with a great sentiment - "Have I toad you?"
Really loved doing this one - the paper colors the image and flowers! To create a background I stamped The boy then masked him off so I could stamp the stamp "Cattails" on either side of him. I colored with my Copics and then found bold color papers with Simple Stories. I sewed down all the layers - I created a band across the middle with paper and Martha Stewart Emroidery Doily Border punch. My favorite punch. I also pulled out some red mulberry roses with MS leaf punch -
Inside more of the same pattern papers. Had some great sentiment blocks with the collection - love how the lace border matches it.
Here are my Copic colors used -
