Happy Hedgehog Birthday

Hello. I created a bright and cheerful card today using some new products from Clearly Besotted:

The white layer was first stamped using the hedgehog corner on the right side, masked off, and then a row of cacti stamped along the bottom. This row was also masked off, and a circle stencil – die cut out of mylar – used to create the orange sky.

With both stamp masks, and the circle stencil in place, I then used yet another stencil on top of all that, to use a fun little cactus images stencil to blend again for a tone-on-tone effect.

I then coloured the images with Copics, and added white gel pen for some details.

The sentiment was stamped in the same Distress Oxide I blended the sky with and fussy-cut.

White layered onto Kraft, then layered onto a card base.
