My 1st High Hopes Design Team card

Here is my first card as a Guest Diva on the High Hopes Design Team.This card was made for this week's High Hopes Blog Challenge #47... Lots of Layers.

For me this is a really significant leap in the card making arena. As most of you know I am absolutely in love with this range of stamps as they are such a joy to work with. I have so many ideas running through my head at the moment all of which involve colouring of course.

Today's card features the stamp Crystal Snowlady. She has been stamped in Black Stazon on watercolour paper. I have coloured her in using a combination of watercolour pencils and crayons.

The card is from Bazzill, while the designer papers are from Imaginesce. In all I have used 6 layers, the smaller red piece has dots that are too small to see.

For the finishing touches I used glittery snowflake buttons on top of the 'snowflake flowers' and added 2 swirls made with the 'wave swirl' punch.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my first 'official' card.

Until Next Time
Inking of you All
