The Sweetest Hedgehog

Good morning!
How about a little change from skulls? ;)
How about a cute, furry, hedgehog instead? This little guy is part of the Whimsy Stamp's Fall Hedgehogs stamp set.   I colored him in with Copics and added a bit of depth with a black colored pencil.  I added some liquid applique to his cup of coffee (cocoa?).  Love how dimensional it looks! 
I did a bit of sewing and added flowers and leaves.  The leaves are part of the stamp set, but the flowers are from the Hibiscus Flower Die Set.  The sentiment was stamped directly on the apple with Versamark ink and embossed in white.  Isn't this pink plaid paper the cutest?   

Thank you so much for stopping by today! :)

I couldn't resist making another pirate card using Whimsy Stamp's Treasure Map Die set.   I used the same technique on this skull as my last post.  I took Crackle Paste on cream card stock. Once it was dry, I used Tim Holtz Distress Crayons in black and brown to define the cracks. The map portion was stamped with Treasure Map stamp set.  I inked up the edges to distress it a bit.  I adhered the map and skull to black card stock and give it a splattering of white paint. 
As a final touch, I die cut the sentiment with the new Arrgh Word and Shadow Die set. The black card stock I used had a white core, so I sanded it a bit to distress it. 
If you haven't yet checked out Whimsy's new release, be sure to check it out! 
Have a great week!
