That's Amore!

This weeks High Hopes Challenge is 'Playing Favourites' hosted by the lovely Jeanne. I haven't made many cards using the chef but he is one of my many favouites. He makes me smile every time. My other favouite thing to do is create a little scene. I haven't been doing that much lately and I really think I should get back into it. The background is done using post it notes to mask off the different areas and a lot of brayering and sponging! The sentiment is white Heidi Swapp rubons and the stars are made using white acrylic ink.

Pop on over to the High Hopes Challenge blog for more info and don't forget to link your card there if you play along. You could be the random winner of some High Hopes Rubber!

WOW!!! this is stunning... Really amazing.. how do you make it so your paper doesn't start to peel..my biggest problem with blending and coloring is I find that my paper starts to peel after blending for a period of time. Is there any secret? I love your tutorial btw.. hugs www.stretchnbubbles.blogspot.com
