Anyone who knows me knows I love a good Penny Black hedgie! Well here is another fellow getting ready for Easter. I bought this stamp last Easter and was excited to pull it out again this year. I used my Tombow markers to color the image on watercolor paper and cut the image apart so the hedgie and the card ended up on 2 different panels. I matted everything as shown but added some crotchet cotton that I colored with a red Tombow marker to attach the hedgie and the cart. I embellished the egg and chick with Stampendous Fun Flock and if I had been thinking I would have taken a better picture of the panel 2 of the card so you could see it. I stamped the sentiment (that comes in the hedgie set) after coloring the individual letters with the same Tombow markers I used to color the image so everything matches! I love the fun look of the multicolor letters. I must remember to do this more often! I used my Spellbinder scallop edgeability to add an edge to my designer paper by Upsy Daisy. To finish off the card I used some Hero Arts gems and a Martha Stewart butterfly punch. At the moment all supplies used to make this card are in stock at Crafty Capers so hurry in before anything is sold out.
I own Crafty Capers, a rubber stamp store, located in Nanaimo BC. I started stamping after one of my sisters bought me some stamps and inks for a Christmas present about 20 years ago. I have been hooked ever since!
