There are so many inspiring sketches and challenges available to us all in the blogging community, and the current sketch at Ismaki this week was provided by the very talented Claudia Rosa.I have used a Penny Black Hedgehog stamp for this design, in honour of our new 'Hoggy' family!
The image is called 'yours to take' which is stamped onto watercolour paper with Archival jet black, and coloured in using my favourite thing of the moment, which is taking the colour directly from the inkpads using a waterbrush.
The papers on this card are scraps of Basic Grey 'Scarlet's Letter' and a small piece of Bazzill which i have run through my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder for some texture.The sentiment is a rub-on from Making memories, with some Brenda Pinnick chipboard and a couple of brads. A tiny piece of eyelash fibre completes my design :)
Although this was made to welcome our new Hedgehog family, i think it will also be my husband's Anniversary card, so i'm well ahead of myself as it's not till September!!

See you soon :)
