"Oops, There Goes Another Rubber Tree..."


Yay! My first High Hopes stamp gets colored and posted. I love this little guy, although I'm not sure how fond I am of coloring ants. This is my first attempt, well....second. The first ant was too dark so I started over with the Warm Greys instead of the Cool Greys. I colored the rest with Copics. He fit perfectly into my Mega Curved Rectangle Nestie. I had a flower punch that I inked with SU markers and stamped on the left side. I sponged So Saffron and More Mustard around the outer edges and used my two SU word punches for the sentiment. I attached my flowers and mounted it all on Garden Green CS and Voila! - I just smile when I see this little guy. This was a pre-order from 7 Kids College Fund and I got others to ink up as well. So glad I got them. Hopefully I'll share those with you soon. If you want to check out the other cool pre-orders they're offering, as well as the fabulous stock of items they now carry, you can get there by clicking on the logo on the left side of my blog. I hope you have a wonderful week-end and if you're on the east coast, don't get buried under too much snow. Thanks for stopping by.
