Hedgehog Get-together!!


I LOVE Hedgehogs!! And until the other day, I didn't own a single one!! Heehee! Well I HAD to remedy THAT situation!! They had several different designs at the stamp store but I chose this one, called 'Get-together'. Aren't they just too cute??

I stamped them in Archival Versafine Black Onyx on shimmery white paper because I knew that I wanted to use my Prismacolour pencils on them. I really find that this paper makes a difference with this technique. I used several different colours of pencils along with my odorless mineral spirits and blending stumps to create the little scene. I added a light blue around the edges of the Hedgies to create a little bit of shading and also I used my Clear Stardust gel pen to add some sparklies to the flowers. The patterned paper was cut from some 6x6 DCWV papers that I won on Angie's blog, Quacking Creations. I love the colour combinations in it and wouldn't you know, it has two of our new In Colours in it!!! So the card base is Groovy Guava and I also used Soft Sky to mat the Hedgehogs. The sentiment is made using my Papertray set and I added some Prima flowers and a brad!

So are you working on my challenge??? It's not a hard one....just make a card ... any style, shape, layout....but it must include a pastel colour as the main colour plus black!! Here is a pic of the prize for the challenge! Go here for all the details and to link up your card....I wanna see them!! And here is the Kimmie's Kandy for the challenge.....an adorable new Studio G clear mini stamp set!! Also I have punched some Scalloped Circles in Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Blush Blossom, Soft Sky and Groovy Guava!!!



Oh and Crystal asked me a question on the last post! She asked about the monkey stamp that was pictured in my stamp haul from the other day!!! He is a Changito monkey from Stampendous!! There are several designs to choose from! Isn't he so cute?? Maybe I'll play with him sometime this week!! Feel free to ask me questions any time and I will try to answer them in my posts!!
