Growing hearts


I was looking through stamps for sale on eBay and came across this cutie and was lucky enough to win the bid. It is the first time I have tried colouring hedgies with black and grey instead of browns, They are always this colour on the stamps but somehow I think of hedgies as brown. Makes a change to have them a different colour I think.

Image - Penny Black TLC
Medium - Copics
Papers - MME Lost and Found Rosy
Punch - Michaels border punch
Roses - Wild Orchid
Other - ribbon and pearl heart from stash

This is lovely. The hedgies do look good and are really cute. I still colour mine in browns, haven't had a go with blacks/greys yet! Sharon x

Adorable stamp! There's something so very cute about hedgehogs (we've had some living in our garden for a few years now, and they're just as cute in real life!), and I'm pleased for you you managed to get this super cute stamp to play with.
Love the colour combo. There's something very effective about red and black, and breaking it up with a softer neutral works perfectly. x
