Hedgehog Feelings

Hello Sweeties, and happy Wednesday!

Today I have another card to share with you from what I am calling my “projects from the scrap pile” series. Today I’m doing some stamping with Stampin’Up, and an adorable hedgehog image called A Little Smile.

I don’t know if you guys know this, but I have a serious soft spot for hedgehogs. I’ve actually had two of the little guys as pets, and they truly are just the cutest things ever. The first little guy started out as a present for my son, but quickly became mine. And the second? Well, I just had to have another. You know how that goes.  I mean come on…. look at them!

I had so much fun challenging myself to use only scraps at my scrapbook retreat in January, that I did the same thing on this last trip, too. So once again I packed only a few stamps, my Distress inks, and old paper packs I’m trying to use up. And I was doing just fine until I got distracted by a friend’s new stamps and Zig Clean Color markers… Can you say, sidetracked? But that, my friends, is a whole other story. 😀

For this card, I did some water-coloring using my Distress inks and a wet paintbrush. Always a favorite mode of coloring for me because I love the bloom you get from layering the inks. I’ve been hanging onto that tiny scrap of lace for forever, until it found a home here. And the paper, that some of you might remember, is an old collection from Fancy Pants called As You Wish.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day.
