The hop starts today (Wednesday June 15th at noon EST) and ends on Wednesday June 22nd at noon EST.

For this hop we have 6 different prize draws! We have not one but TWO grand prize draws, so two lucky hoppers will win a large selection of new release stamps. Grand Prize 1 will be for those who help us advertise the hop, and Grand Prize 2 will be for those who hop along with us. We also have 4 mini candy stops throughout the hop where you can enter to win a new release stamp! I'm not going to tell you where they are, so if you haven't found them you'll just have go back to the beginning and start hopping! *wink*

For my blog hop creation I used Alice In Chains by Kenny K and Good Life ticket sentiment set.

All the colouring is done with Copic markers, pearls on her neck are accentuated with a yellow Sakura Glaze pen.

The flowers I made made myself from bits of lace from my odds-and-ends box. Flower centers are a combination of different bling bits and spacers/charms.

The chains were fixed to the card with the brads and I also stuck a bit of grey tulle underneath the image. Just because I could, lol.

So now it's time for you to continue the hop by hopping on over to Crissy’s blog.

Finally, here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:

Susan said...

wonderful card overall, love the details, and fantastic coloring! :)

Not crazy about the exploitative stereotypical chauvinistic female image!
This is why teenage and tweenage girls end up being cutters and other. Unrealistic female image images thrown in front of them all the time. I am shocked by the amount of female stampers and crafters would use these images.

one of your followers,
Susan
