* Crafts Galore Encore: Sending Hedgehugs


February brings another Anything Goes challenge at Crafts Galore Encore

The sponsor this month is the fabulous Bugaboo Digital Stamps who are offering the winner a $12 store voucher. 

Jodie at Bugaboo kindly gave the DT some digital stamps  to work with and here is the card I made:

I coloured this cute image, called Bug Tulip Hedgie, with Copic markers and added some white Posca pen highlights. He was fussy cut, leaving a narrow white border and placed on an inked oval die cut. The background is Distress Oxides in Twisted Citron and ---, smooshed onto acetate with water and transferred onto the card. Twisted Citron was applied through an AAll & Create, Lotza Dotz stencil and blended with Peeled Paint. Some Mesh stamping was added using Hickory Smoke and some white paint splatters were flicked all over the background. The edges were inked with green and then black and matted onto black paper.
Two die cut borders were placed along the centre of the card along with some beautiful ribbon which I won in a challenge. The image and die oval were popped on foam tape to add some dimension.
The sentiment is from a Lawn Fawn stamp set, called Hedgehugs. It was cut into two pieces, inked and adhered.

Many thanks to Jodie at Bugaboo for generously sponsoring and supporting this challenge. We hope you'll pop over to the shop to see the many lovely products on sale.

Also, please pop over to Crafts Galore Encore to see the DTs wonderful designs. 

We'd love to see your creations.
Remember the challenge is always 'Anything Goes' and so you can create any type of project - it doesn't have to be a card.
