High Hopes Sneak Peek Day 2 and new challenge

Day 2 of the sneak peeks from High Hopes - this is "Herbie" (available to purchase from tomorrow)

Enjoying the sneak peeks?  Be sure to leave a comment on the High Hopes blog as a winner will be chosen for a prize package of some of the new designs from one of the comments over the 3 Sneak Peek posts.

I've coloured him (though Greg thought it was a 'her'!) with pencils, and added clear gloss to the chickens beaks and feet, and also to the centre of the rosette.
I chalked some clouds in to resemble a sunny day and there's also a touch of brown at the bottom, but my camera didn't really pick these up.  I've also used some of my new red enamel bling (which I'm lovin!).

Our challenge at High Hopes this week is 'On a Sunny Day' - play along with your High Hopes stamps and you could win a new one of your own ... maybe you'll choose one of these new release stamps!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown #178 - stripes
Papertake Weekly - Yew Year, New Stash
Die Cuttin Divas #148 - out with the old (my Die-namics fence die) and in with the new (my stamp)
Simon Says Stamp Monday - anything goes
Dream Valley #73 - boys/men
CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge - January

Herbie and his chickens make the cutest image. I like the added fence. Great papers and nice sketch.

I love this one Lynne - it's so like Nathan with his wee hens - he carries them around and talks to them!
