I'm still playing with the Penny Black Bubbly stamp set and have used this cute Hedgie from the set for my card today.
I found a Penny Black challenge...
I colored this cutie with Copic markers E50, E31, E25, E17, R27, R24, R22, RV10, YG67, YG63, YG61 and touched up my stamping with a 0.5 Copic Multiliner. I gave "her" eyelashes too.
I made a frame for my Hedgie using Spellbinders Labels 14, the two largest dies and embossed my frame with a Sizzix Lattice embossing folder. I learned something new about paper piercing today and wanted to try it, wow what a difference - you are going to laugh when I tell you...
I have this neat Tim Holtz ruler (I bought at Michaels) that I use all the time and bought it because it has holes for paper piercing. I haven't had a tool that would fit in the holes for piercing though. I was watching a video and the lady used a push pin, yikes why hadn't I thought of that months ago! I also used a small piece of double sided tape on my ruler to hold it in place as I pierced. When I was done with a section I could pick it up and see if I'd hit every hole & when I didn't I could go back and fix it. I just might paper pierce more often now that I know this, maybe you'll find it helpful too.
The "happy mail" sentiment I made on my computer and the cardstock colors I used are Neenah Solar White, Via Vellum Black & Scarlet. I'm not sure who the tan cardstock is made by it was a scrap. To finish my card I added some little black half pearls.
Thanks for visiting my blog today!
