I could just squish these cuties!

I didn’t have anything with a hedgehog in my stash. What a great excuse to get another stamp set! LOL! There were plenty to pick from on, but I settled on the Smile All Day stamp set from Penny Black. Brian needed a Mother’s Day card for his mom, so that’s where this one would go…

After stamping the image in Hybrid Black, I masked the characters and blended in the background with Distress Oxides. The rest was all coloring! I started with a base of Copic markers and then added in the fine detail with my Polychromos pencils. I went for a loose pencil job to make it look more like fur. 

Today’s video is a speed coloring video so you can enjoy the coloring process take shape. It’s quite soothing to watch these kinds of videos, so I’m sure this isn’t the last one you’ll see from me!

Don’t forget to leave a comment at the end of the post to qualify for my monthly giveaway!

Time to hop along!

Don’t forget to hop along to see all of our hedgehog-themed designs. Oh, and you will get bonus entries for commenting on each channel in this hop (listed below). You have one week (until May 21, 2019) to enter. Creating a blog post was not a requirement for the hop, so it’s best to hop over to YouTube now, leave a comment for me and hop along!

Just a note that the video hop isn’t scheduled until 9AM central, so you may have to come back and visit other videos later…

Floral cards are great for any occasion.
I love it when I can craft up a design that will accommodate any sentiment. I find that lots of floral designs fit that category.
