sending hedgehugs...

This little bitty stamp set from Lawn Fawn is SO much fun.  And you know...now that I am trying to color again (for the billionth time), I love these fun little images.  We had a crafty weekend recently and I was completely inspired by all the ladies and their big bags of Copics.  I wondered if I would try it again when I got home with my cups of 18 markers...and I did!  An easy image...but its a step!

So I cut out a Lil Inker Stitched Rectangle and lined it up in the corner of my Misti.  I lined up these 3 images on the grid so they were nice and straight.  I stamped them with Tuxedo Memento.  I don't know about you...but I am not a fan of that black.  My go-to black is Versafine Black Onyx.  It is so amazingly bold and perfect and next to it, Memento looks like a dark gray.

I proceeded to color these fun little hedgehogs and when I was done realized I still had my stamps lined up in the Misti.  People have been double stamping all over the place with the Misti and it works great!

So I put the stitched rectangle back in the Misti and added another layer of Versafine Black Onyx.  It gave it a nice bold look over the top of that Memento.  I also added a dot of Glossy Accents into that little heart.

Last, I added a heart onto the envelope.  I made a little 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 envelope to go with this little Mini card.  That envelope maker is such a great tool to have!

So that's it for me today!  I have a card for the Simon Says April Card Kit coming up soon!  :)

Have a great night!

  9. Great idea to stamp over them with another black! I couldn't agree more with you regarding the Memento black ink.
