I'm linking this card in the As You Like It challenge "Favorite Die and Why?, the Happy Little Stampers "Anything Goes with Dies" challenge and the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge, which has only a few hours left so, without further delay, here is my card.
This little Hedgehogs are in a rush to go to a party, they are from the Penny Black set called WONDERFUL, I used 3 of the images, the one holding the balloon, was masked just so I can die cut the colorful balloons and add them to the panel, as well as the clouds, to follow the design of the sketch. I love the clouds dies, there are actually 3 sizes but I only used 2 and the Balloon die set is also fabulous, it has 3 different sizes and shapes of them.
I stamped all this adorable critters onto Canson water color paper with Versafine Onix Black ink and colored them with SU markers and the aqua painter. The sky is sponged with Broken China distress ink. The balloons are die cut with some scraps of Christmas wrapping paper.
Here is a picture of the finished inside.
The sentiments are from Flourishes and Penny Black.
Here is the sketch that inspired my card.
I turned the sketch on the vertical but kept my card on the horizontal, I hope you can see who I interpreted the sketch.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
