Some bubbles, & your chance to be a Diva!!

Happy Monday, I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!! It's cloudy & dreary & damp out today, but it's also 40 degrees so I don't care!! Tomorrow is supposed to be in the 50's!! Woohoo!!!

I've had this image sitting on my desk for a week. I could NOT decide how to color it. I could make the bird red, like a cardinal, or blue, like a bluebird. It was a tough decision, lol, but in the end I decided to make him plain ole brown like a robin.......one of the first signs of spring!!



The name of the stamp is Burt's Bath & he's one of the many recent releases from High Hopes. I decided to use my Basic Grey Ambrosia pad, & colored the image accordingly with my Prismas & gamsol. I made the bubbles nice & glittery with some Dazzling Diamonds glitter, added a few Primas & some Dew Drops. I couldn't decide on a layout, so I went to SCS & looked through their sketch challenges. I chose SC199 ~~ it worked well with all the papers I had picked out. I'm glad I finally got this done, as it's been staring at me for a few days now, taunting me, challenging me to come up with SOMETHING. In the end, I think it turned out quite okay :)


And now for a Diva announcement.......

If you love High Hopes as much as I do....have you ever thought of becoming a Guest Diva?? We are looking for a couple stampers to become guest designers for our next term, which runs from April through June. The dt is the best....the stamps are the best....the owner is the best...what more could you ask for??? Hop on over to the High Hopes blog to find out how you can apply!! Good luck!!
