I made some time today to sit in my craft room and make a card. I haven't really felt like it until today but hopefully this will be the start of many more to come. I also made a Stampin' Up order with my friend which I hope will be here by the weekend and give me something else new to play with too.
This was my first play with my High Hopes stamps. I felt sure the first one I would ink would be the gorilla but as soon as I got this fella I knew I had to play with him. I saw a card on another blog http://artfullyila.blogspot.com/2008/05/high-hopes-may-project-of-month.html and was sold on this guy straight away. I just love High Hopes stamps right now. They are just so darn cute.
Cardstock is Tempting Turquoise, Real Red and Orchid Opulence. I used my SU watercolor pencils and aqua painter. The bag of nuts I cut out and used a dimensional. The scallop at the bottom was done using the slit punch. Finished with 2 black brads. The sentiment inside the card says "I can't believe I forgot".
