Hedgehog Card (Hanna and Friends #225)

Hi everyone :-D

Today I am posting my sixth and last project as a Guest Designer at Hanna and Friends.

These past three months were really a great fun. I am very happy I had an opportunity to work with very talented and nice ladies. And, oh WOW, we really had great themes! You can see all my Hanna and Friends GDT projects here. :-D

There is currently a new Guest Designer Call at Hanna and Friends . Everyone is invited to apply. Here is a direct link.

Now to the current challenge. Theme for this fortnight is #225 - Inchies. Use at least one inchie on your project.

A prize for one lucky winner are 5 digital stamps of winner's choice, sponsored by My Besties.

For this challenge, I made this Hedgehog Card.

I used scraps of white cardstock paper and cut 4 inchies (squares 1" x 1"). Then I stamped cute hedgehog from  Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy' stamp set in each inchie. I colored images in watercoloring technique using Tim Holtz´s Distressed Inks, paint brush and water. 

After drying, I distressed edges of inchies and glued them to a larger squares. I made these from scraps of textured cardstock paper. 

I glued 3-D foam pads on each square, to pop up inchies, and added clear resin on hedgehog's muzzle and eyelid (on each image) to create glossy accents.

I used Kraft paper bag for layers. 

Sentiment is from the same stamp set as image,  Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy'.

At the end I decided to add gloss resin dots on Kraft paper layer, to add more interest to the whole card. 

Card dimensions are 139 mm x 101 mm (5 1/2" x 4").

  • Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy'
