My next card is simple with one of favorite Penny Black images – Hedgie.
I thought I’d use an Inchie Art ATC to showcase this little hedgie from the clear set Winter Play (30-265). I added dabs of blues and purples from my Koi Field Sketch Watercolor set. I heavily colored the ATC and just let the watercolor run until it covered the entire rectangle. I then let the ATC completely dry. I thought the ATC needed a little more color depth but I didn’t want to add more water. I decided just to use Distress Inks to deepen the color.
I then stamped my hedgie and colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils. I then fussy cut the image and set it aside. I decided to create snowbanks. This hedgie image included snowballs on the ground and I wanted to include them as well on my card. I stamped the image again and cut around it to create the first part of my snowbank. I then cut another snowback to create dimension. Both were added to the ATC along with the hedgie image.
To complete the card I adhered the ATC to my card base. I used a white Liquid Applique pen to add dots of snow. Finally, I heat embossed the sentiment from the clear set Let It Snow (30-086).
