Cute Hedgehog

I love the cute hedgehog from Lawn Fawn's "sending hedgehugs" set and couldn't wait to play with the set. So instead of working on more cards for the current PC submission call, I made a card for the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge last night. This week the challenge is "Create Your Own Background". Fun!


Here is the card:


To create my background, I masked the edges of my panel with painter's tape (and temporarily adhered it this way), and added splatters of ink. I used various Distress Inks with water, as well as gold Gelato with water and dried the splatters with my heat-embossing tool before adding the next color. Finally, I applied some ink with an ink-blending tool. The tag was die-cut from patterned paper from the "sweater weather" paper pad. I colored the hedgehog with Distress Inks and water. The speech bubble is from the "into the woods" set. I hope you like it!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!

Vanessa
