Looking sharp!


The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Use Your Favourite Image.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

As I LOVE hedgehogs I just had to choose the most adorable The Hedgehog  by Crafty Sentiments Designs.He’s been stamped directly onto the card base then coloured with Polychromos Pencils and blending solution on his body and face for a smoother appearance.The sentiment was stamped in place before the kraft card overlay with die cut apertures was adhered to the card front with foam pads.Some jute twine was wrapped around the bottom of the panel and wooden flower buttons scattered across the top right corner to finish the card to give it a rustic feel.
