At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Sasayaki Glitter as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Here’s the very chic Mia by Sasayaki Glitter.I decided to ‘dress’ her by paper piecing her clothing including her bag,shoes and hairbow which have also been glittered.The spots on her top have been painted with gesso as I still ,rather annoyingly,can’t find my white gel pen anywhere!Her hair and skin have been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.A little shading has been given to her clothing using these pens too.The background papers are glittery too 🙂 Some satin ribbon and pearl brads complete the card.

Hedgehugs just for you!

At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Sasayaki Glitter as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

These adorable Hedgehogs by Sasayaki Glitter have been printed onto  Neenah Desert Storm cardstock then coloured with Polychromos pencils.I’ve used a few different techniques with them too.Their faces and the sky have been blended with Spectrum Noir Blending Solution using a paper stump.I did take an artistic liberty with the faces and made them flesh toned as I didn’t want the hedgehogs to end up looking too brown.Yeah,I know – hedgehogs are brown 😀 The colours on the butterfly and bow have been blended using pencils only.For the ground and shadowing once I’d layered the pencils they were blended with a dry paper stump only.A little white gel pen had been added for highlights and a Stardust pen for a touch of glitter the the heart on the bow.I cut apertures in two sheets of patterned paper to frame them and stretched a length of ribbon across the bottom then gave the sentiment some lift with foam pads.A few jute twine threaded wooden buttons have been arranged in the top left corner in a higgledy piggledy fashion.

It’s no secret that I like (well,LOVE) hedgehogs…Quite a few years ago my DD1 caught a glimpse of one running across the road through our hall window one evening…What she didn’t bank on was a mad woman chasing after it with a camera!Yep,that was me… 😉
