I always loved that there are always matching sentiments for the cute High Hopes stamps.
My card for today's anniversary features Whitby Whale. I coloured him with Twinkling H2Os (Ice Blue, True Blue, Rich Cobalt, Poppy Red for cheeks) and put a lot of crystal effects (glaze) over him. I stamped Whitby 2 more times and coloured the two images just quickly. I wanted to do a 3D effect and you won't see too much of the colouration of the below images.

whale Ich habe es immer sehr geschätzt, dass High Hopes die passenden Texte zu ihren Motiven anbietet. Meine Karte zeigt Whitby den Wal. Ich habe ihn mit Twinkling H2O coloriert (Ice Blue, True Blue, Rich Cobalt, Poppy Red for cheeks), und viel Crystal Effects (Glaze) über ihn gestrichen. Das Motiv habe ich noch 2 weitere Male gestempelt und nur oberflächlich ausgemalt. Ich wollte dem Motiv einen 3D Effekt verleihen, und bei den unteren Teilen sieht man die Coloration fast überhaupt nicht.

I did the background of the punched out shape with pastels.
Den Hintergrund der ausgestanzten Form habe ich mit Pastelkreiden gewischt.

Guess what I used to create the wavy border on the top of my card - Whiff of Joy's new "Curly Hearts" border die. They came out perfect for my needs :) Love how versatile those border dies can be used!!

Stellt euch vor, was ich verwendet habe um die "Wellen" Kante zu gestalten, am oberen Rand meiner Karte - Whiff of Joy's "Gekringelte Herzen" Randstanzteil. Sieht es nicht super aus? Ich liebe es wie vielseitig diese Stanzteile sind :)
