It's HEDGEHOG Time:


For those of you that don't know, I have a HUGE thing for Hedgehogs. I love them and think there just so cute. The Penny Black Hedgehog range is just so cute, their almost the only other stamps that I have in my collection aside from Stampin' Up! Above is one of my collection.

The layout and colour scheme are courtesy of a challenge posted on SCS, and as I've really stepped out of the SU comfort zone tonight, I decided to opt for the polka dot tan ribbon as well. The clouds are simply made by wrapping cling wrap around my pointer finger and dabbing it onto a stamp pad before smudging it onto the sky. The little hedgehog has been coloured in using SU markers and Pastels for the softer areas and has been adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals to give it a little lift from the page.

I hope you all like this one!

Supplies:
* Mushroom Hedgehog (Penny Black Inc) & Summer By the Sea Stamps.
* Basic Black, Whisper White, Soft Sky Cardstock and as I had no Kraft cardstock, I substituted it with brown paper.
* Chocolate Chip, Whisper White and Basic Grey Stamp Pads. Earth Elements Markers & Stampin' Pastels.
* Unknown Polka Dot ribbon (probably from Spotlight), Stamp-a-ma-jig & Stampin' Dimensionals.

Nerine he is very cute. Great job with the clouds. Also, I think it is good to take the SU hat off occasionally, there are far too many other great products out there!
