Gabriel's A Border!

Another new release image!

Oh my goodness, this High Hopes Stamps new release is so exciting! Last week we did "sneak peeks" but now all the images are live in the High Hopes Stamps online store! I am loving all of the stamps aren't you? Today I am sharing with you "Gabriel's A Border". I just love this guy and you can see the pure happiness on his face from his smile! He kind of reminds me of my Nephew so I'll likely be giving this card to him at Christmas!

One of my favourite Winter colour schemes is blue and brown so I knew I had to make this card using Bo Bunny's Powder Mountain collection! It's an older collection but perfect for this card. I coloured Gabriel with my Copic Sketch markers in colours to coordinate with the design papers. 

On the inside I used a stamp from the Sentiment Set #1 (U500) and embossed the inked image with clear embossing powder.

Copics used:
Skin: E00, E11, R20
Hair: E43, E44, E47
Blue items: B91, B93, B95, B97
Grey items: C1, C3, C5
Beige items: E30, E31, E33
Air swooshes: B000

I used these ticket stubs from my stash and added a triple looped bow to them. I also added some small flower sequins to the image to look like snowflakes.
