I received this cute little Hedgehog Stamp set called "Happy Forever" a couple of weeks ago and couldn't wait to have a free day to ink him up. I have wanted this set since it was first introduced, as the July Stamp of the Month, in the Summer catalog. I had to wait until I had a full size order in July to get him for free. And, he was worth the wait!!!
For my card I used this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch combined with Jeanette Lynton's Color Me Monday. The colors are Cocoa, Bamboo, Juniper and Sorbet. They kind of remind me of neopolitan ice cream. I stamped the little hedgehog onto Bamboo cardstock and sponged his body in Bamboo and fur in Cocoa. I learned a trick from another consultant on how to stamp two different colors. First of all you stamp the image twice. On the second image, cut out the body and place it over the body of the first image. Then sponge the fur lightly in cocoa. Next, remove the cut out body and put the second fur piece over the first and sponge the body lightly in bamboo. When I was done with the sponging, I cut out the little guy and attached him to another stamped image on Colonial White. For the balloons, I stamped them on Sorbet and Juniper cardstock. I cut them out and attached them to the colonial white piece. You don't need to cut out the balloon strings, because they are already stamped on the colonial white piece.
The B&T paper is from the "Unforettable" paper pack and the cardstock used is Cocoa, Juniper, Sorbet and Bamboo.
