Thanks for picking me up

Hello and welcome back to another card I created. This time I used a digi by Craftin Desert Divas and it's the first time that I actually use a digi stamp. Had some trouble with my printer who always ate my paper... But I managed in the end using Neenah cardstock. I colored the hedgehog with Spectrum Noir markers (fur: EB2, GB8, GB10, prickles: TN7, TN8, EB5, eyes: IB3, BT6, BT8, flower: CT1, CT2, CT3; CR10, DR2, pumpkin: OR1, OR2, OR3; TN7, TN8; JG1, JG6) and also applied some glossy accents to her eyes and nose.


I wanted to create a nice seen for the little hedgehog and chose a pumpkin stamp from a fall set by Some Odd Girl. Using a masking technique,  I stamped multiple pumpkins. Because I wanted to use Distress inks for my background, I applied Pebeo Drawing Gum to the pumpkins to protect them from the ink. After the drawing gum dried completely, I chose brushed corduroy for the ground and abandoned coral, dried marigold, and squeezed lemonade for the sky. After the ink was dry, the drawing gum could be removed. To color in the pumpkins I used Zig markers (52, 70; 47, 44).



I used kraft cardstock as a cardbase and placed my background panel on it. And... I didn't like it. The colors were far to bright and the hedghog wouldn't get the attention it deserved. That's when I used vellum and placed it over the szene. And I love how it dulls the color just a tiny bit. Then I was on the lookout for a convenient sentiment. I had several options in the end but decided to go with the "Thanks for picking me up" sentiment from Mama Elephant which I thought was really nice because the hedgehog had, kind of, picked up the pumpkin from the ones in the background. I stamped it with VersaMark on the vellum and embossed it with Mandarin embossing powder from WOW.

  1. That is such a cute card - I love the way you've used the vellum, it lets the background shine through without taking away from the hedgehog. So sweet! Xx
