High Hopes Peek Day 3!

Time for another High Hopes Rubber Stamps new release peek!

Here’s my card for today using an image from High Hope’s new artist, Dustin Pike that will be available tomorrow, January 20th!


The bunny and grass were colored with Copic markers. I used Fushia Flower Soft on wire stems for the flowers at the base. I added more Fushia Flower Soft to the button to make it match. Christmas Green Flower Soft was used for the “grass” around the flowers. Here’s a close up:
