I did it so there!

The title is directed to a group that I'm in called the Sassy Seven. Each Wend. we have a card challenge that we are suppose to complete. As usual I am a day late! BUT.... This weeks challenge was a sketch that we had to follow and it included a CIRCLE!!! What you may not know (but the Sassy group does) is that i have a hard time wrapping my head around circle anything on cards!! So I think they made this sketch a challenge on purpose!! BUT I showed them!! I DID A CIRCLE ON MY CARD. So to my Sassy friends: emoticon

I'm still on a High Hope kick. (I have to get my use out of the stamps as long as I still have them. Sooner or later mom is going to want them back!!) I stamped the leaf first and masked it until I had the coverage I wanted. Then keeping the leaves masked, I stamped the little boy.

Images were watercolored with markers by scribbling the markers on a plastic lid and picking up the color with my aqua painter. I used the cloud stencil to add the sky in and some stickles on the flowers. I also stamped Sanded on the Night of Navy in Night of Navy for a texture look.

Now you may be wondering about the colors. The colors are from the color challenge on SCS for this week: Glorious Green, Real Red and Night of Navy. As for the eyelets, that is the Ways to Use It challenge on SCS this week.

stamp: high hopes, Sanded; ink: black stazon, night of navy; paper: night of navy, real red, glorious green, white; accs: real red, night of navy, glorious green markers, eyelets, stickles, cloud stencil, coluzzle

This is adorable. See, you CAN use circles! I told you to go ahead and change it to another shape though if you had to. Silly girl. Great Card!

Bwaaahhh! You are rubbing off on me Amber, I'm starting to dislike circles, too! But I give you props for being a good sport and playing anyway. Your card is fabulous!
