I just love this sweet image from Penny Black! I made this card for my niece who will be turning 9. O.k. it’s not until May, but I am always late, so this year i vowed not to be!! Now I just have to remember to mail it…
This could just as easily be a Valentine too with a change of sentiment.
I colored the hedgie with an SU! blender pen and inks, in Chocolate Chip and Creamy Caramel. I also added regal rose, around his belly and face, after brushing the tip over a scrap paper to lighten the color . The heart balloons are colored with Bravo burgandy, regal rose, and a dusting of SU! dazzling diamonds glitter. I used a little wild wasabi at his feet, for the patch of grass.
The layout is from todays sketch challenge on SCS, although, I made my focal image a lot bigger and in a heart shape. I just thought the hearts worked so well with this hedgie with the heart balloons.
The colors are from yesterdays Color challenge, to use Kiwi Kiss, Bravo Burgandy and Regal Rose. I never would have thought of this combo, but I like the results.
I used quite a few layers on this one, and the hearts are popped up on dimensionals as well as the sentiment.
I was wondering if I should have added some bling to the bottom left or maybe some dew drops…what do you think?
Thanks for stopping by today, I also wanted to say that I enjoy your questions, so keep them coming! Normally, I just answer them by e-mail, which is generally how I get them, but tomorrow I will post an answer to an interesting question I had from a reader, which led me to do a little experiment of my own.
Grab a cup of coffee (or your favorite brew) and come on by!
Have a creative day!
