Now onto what I designed for today's hop. I chose to use the Ewe image from the Animals set and incorporate it into a scene on a small white purse template (by DeNami Design). I colored the entire template with distress inks. For the grass and tree leaves, I used Crushed Olive, Shabby Shutters, and Peeled Paint with a blender tool. For the sky, I used Tumbled Glass and a post-it note punched with my scallop punch to use as a template for sponging the clouds in my sky. The tree trunk was stamped in Vintage Photo; I colored it in with Copic markers. The ewe was also colored with Copic markers.
I set eyelets at the top of the purse with my Cropadile and strung baby blue fiber ribbon through the holes.
Here's an inside view so you can see how the scene carries to the inside, as well as the sentiment I stamped. Since I didn't want the backside of the eyelets or my fiber to show, I covered the inside with blue designer paper. You can also see my Velcro closure.
Here's a partial side and back view of the purse so you can see how the scene work carries throughout the entire template.
OK, better get HOPPIN’!! Thanks SO much for being a part of our excitement!! Here's the HOP ROUTE!! Have an AWESOME day!!!
