So meet the delightful Hedgehog – Hello! by Crafty Sentiments Designs.He’s available as a rubber stamp and here I’ve coloured him in Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.I decided I’d give him a setting and to be honest I can always do with a bit of practice on creating backgrounds 😉 Not sure if it’s the angle of the notebook or the lens,maybe both,but hedgie on the right looks as tho’ he’s been more slugs n’ snails.But rest assured they are definitely following the same diet.
Here’s a side by side piccie :
I decided to make a card and notepad set just for something a little different…I chose these papers with a woodsy/countryside feel to them.Then teamed them with some kraft and lifted the reddy pink with coordinating card.There was already a sentiment on the woodgrain piece on the card so I thought I’d utilise that and cut the flowers out again from a second sheet and layered them up,slightly overlapping the bottom corner of the butterfly paper.The ric rac was a little too pale so I toned it in to match with a Copic Ciao Marker.This has been topped with a jute twine threaded button.The same papers were used on the notepad and I made new covers out of kraft.The butterfly paper was turned into a flower,ric rac for leaves and the button added to the centre.
