We have a new Midweek Throwdown challenge starting today at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps, the theme is Christmas In July! This was a pretty easy challenge for me because I bought a bunch of Penny Black Christmas Hedgehog stamps last month. They were on sale but the truth is I'm hopelessly addicted to Penny Black Hedgies right now.
I almost tried coloring this one with greys but couldn't decide which ones, you know... Cool Grey, Warm Grey, Toner Grey, etc. so I went for my safe Hedgie colors in Copics R37, R24, R22, YR21, Y21, RV10, C00, C1, G0000, YG67, YG63, YG61, E25, E17, E50, E30.
I also added some stickles to the star on top of the tree, let it dry a little and added more Glossy Accents to seal any glitter that might flake off. I used Spellbinders Octagon and Scalloped Octagon dies as well as a Tags Trio die and that what seems to be my "signature button" on the tag with crochet thread. For a little texture on the white panel I used a Sizzix snowflake embossing folder. The cardstock colors I've used are Stampin' Up! Garden Green, Neenah Solar White & Red Linen.
I hope you'll join us for our Christmas In July challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps this week.
