Happy Hedgehog Day

When I saw this stamp set the first time, I chuckled. Then I Googled. There is, indeed, something called a Hedgehog Day! Apparently, it was a Roman tradition preceding the modern Groundhog Day. This spine-tacular illustration makes me want to celebrate all things Anita Jeram, that’s for sure! 🙂

I used Daniel Smith watercolors again with this set from the Colorado Craft Company and I feel more confident with my color mixing now than I did with my first painting.

These little critters were so fun to color and so scary to die cut! My original intent was not to cut them out at all, so I spent a significant amount of time getting the sky and the trees just right…you’ll hear more about the nerve-racking die-cutting experience in the video below.

I ended up using Green Tea ink to cover up the blue sky from the die cut image and added some Ground Espresso distress oxide to the bottom of my photo and cardstock so that there was some continuity. I also love using Dura-lar and Double Tack Mounting Film in place of acetate on my cards. It’s such a good combination when you don’t want to have to add any jewel/sequin embellishments to cover up adhesive marks.

I hope you enjoy watching the process video for this and make sure to use my FREESHIPPINGMB code when shopping for this stamp and die combination on May 17 and May 18.

I can’t do much without my hands and not being able to use them for any creative endeavors this past month […]
