A Stack of Classic Hedgehogs

Hi! I have a thing for hedgehogs. They are such cute little creatures and it's so fun to hear them puffing while they shuffle through the garden! Last night I had the idea to create a stack of classic hedgehogs on a card (unlike the very different hedgie from the last card) and wanted to give them an autumn background.


I need to give this card to my daughter, she cheered when spotting this stack :)
To create this, I had to do a lot of masking. First, I trimmed the panel of watercolor paper slightly smaller than my Kraft card base. Then I stamped the top hedgehog, masked it, stamped the second and so on. After the images were all stamped and masked, I masked off the edges of the panel with washi tape and applied various inks with an ink blending tool to create the background. Now I flicked ink droplets from a brush and let everything dry. After I had removed all the masks, I colored the images with Copics and stamped the sentiment. Then I adhered the panel to the card base.


This is my last entry to this year's MFT Card Design Superstar Contest. LOVE this company!
