Baby Hedgehog Bath

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!

TGIF!!!  And for those lucky people attending ScrapFest in Richmond Hill, Ontario this weekend - I sure hope you all enjoy the show and get a chance to visit the OCS/High Hopes Stamps Booth! 

Here is another card that I have created using some of the new stamps from the recent Baby Boom Release...
This is Baby Hedgehog Bath (SS021) and Ten Little Phrase sentiment (LL001).  Such an adorable image!
To start, I used a piece of watercolour paper and a Versamark Ink Pad to stamp the image (using my Misti Stamping Tool) then applied Black Embossing Powder on the ink and heated it.  To colour the main image, Tombow Markers and water were used.  After the colouring was finished and dry, glossy accents were applied on the hedgehog's nose, bath lather and bubbles.  A Wink of Stella-yellow glitter pen was added on the little towel to add some sparkle.  For the hedgehog's hair, Fun Flocks-dark chocolate was glued on.  This helped to make the little guy fuzzy!  The image was cut using a MFT Stitched Circle Die and also the same die was used to cut a piece of SU Chocolate Chip cardstock to layer it.   

For the card base, I decided on a piece of SU Chocolate Chip cardstock. SU Bashful Blue cardstock was cut for the background, then dry embossed using a Tim Holtz Bubbles Embossing Folder.  I used a white ink pad with a sponge dauber to colour the raised bubbles.  The designer paper is from Doodlebug-Snips & Snails 6x6 Paper Pad.  The sentiment phrase was heat embossed with Stampendous-Ice Blue embossing enamel. I just love the little bit of shimmer and shine this gives to the words.  A MFT Stitched Fishtail Flag die was used to cut the phrase and foam tape was applied to help make it pop out a bit and add some dimension.  To complete this card, a bunch of YNS gumdrops were added.
