Hedgehog Love!


This is another Penny Black Hedgehog stamp I found in my forgotten box of rubber stamps.  This little guy is called “Hedgehog Tickles”.  I colored him with Copics and fussy cut the image so that he looked like he was lying in a bed of flowers and vines.  I created the background by applying and blending Weathered Wood, Tumbled Glass, Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint distress inks onto Tim Holtz water color paper.  I used the rough side of the paper to get more texture for the background.  The sun was stamped on using Mustard Seed distress ink.  The sentiment and sun are from the SSS Color and Sunshine clear stamp set.  The word ‘love’ is a die also from SSS.  the butterflies and small flowers, vines and branches were made using various MS punches.  The larger flowers were made from MFT dies. 

Have a great day!
