Joy to the World!


The challenge this week for the High Hopes blog is Silver.  So I took this image and colored it in with copics trying to emulate Sandy Allnock and then used Sakura metallic and glitter pens to make the stars silver.

I wanted to emphasize the silver without detracting from it so I matted it on gray.  The purple came from the lowlights on his headdress.  I used a cutterbee piercing bug to add interest and allude to the faux stitching on his robe, around the image and on the sentiment.

Ingredients:

Card size - 8 1/2 " x 5 1/2 "
Cardstock - Recollections white 110lbs; white, gray, purple 65lbs;
Stamp - High Hopes Stamps - Shepherd's Awe; Inkadinkado - Hope; Studio G - alphabet;
Ink - Memento: Tuxedo black, Nautical Blue, Grape;
Color - Copics;
Accessories - Cutterbee piercing tool
