Hello! We hope you are having a lovely weekend. Lynda is here on the blog today with a fantastic handmade card created with our *NEW* HEDGEHOG HUGS and TOTALLY TOADSTOOLS stamp sets and THE FOREST stencil… hedgehog stamp handmade card
I don’t know about you but I get so excited by Autumn. I love the rich colours and cosy feeling it brings. So when I saw the brand new release from Visible Image I was just thrilled to be amongst the first to get to play with them as they are just perfect for the season.
This card showcases the set called ‘Hedgehog Hugs’. This cute little guy is just adorable don’t you think?
I started with a background sheet that I created with Distress Ink by applying to my glass mat, spritzing with water and dabbing it into. Once dry I used a circle mask and inked around the outer edge to create the effect of a setting sun.
I then used my gelli plate and the Forest stencil to create a woodland backdrop. This was achieved by applying a thin layer of brown paint to the plate, laying the stencil over the top, and using a piece of copy paper to lift the paint between the trees. I then lifted the stencil, revealing the tree shapes, and placed my backing paper down over it to lift the image to it.
I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the hedgehog and leaf piles, and also one of the toadstools from the incredible ‘Totally Toadstools’ set, and using 3D gel glue created my woodland scene.
