Penny Black Garden Gossip


I love Penny Black stamps and the Hedgehogs are my favorites!
This cute Hedgie is from the Bubbly set by Penny Black and also comes as an individual wood mounted rubber stamp called Garden Gossip.  I colored this sweet Hedgie with Copic markers E25, E17, E50, E31, RV10, R27, R24, R22 and did some touch ups to my stamping with a 0.5 Copic multiliner.

My layout was C.A.S.E.d from my friend Sandy at A Colourful World, she also used a Penny Black Hedgie and I was inspired by her card.  I used the Copic colorless blender technique for the red panel with the swirls.  The swirls are a Hero Arts background stamp.  My other cardstock colors are Via Vellum Scarlet, Neenah Solar White, Via Vellum Black and I'm not sure who the neutral tan is made by, it was in my scrap drawer.  To finish my card I used three black half pearls and black organdy ribbon.  Oh... the border punch is made by Martha Stewart.  

We have a new Midweek Throwdown challenge starting today at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps, the theme is "Love You".  I didn't stamp Love You anywhere but I think my card would qualify.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
