I love hedgehog stamps, and I wanted to place my little hedgie in a landscape. I sketched the fence, and realized that hedgie needed a gate to get out of his flower garden (when he is not hovering), so I added a little gate, made a cloud template from a Post-It and sponged the sky with Bordering Blue, Brilliant Blue, and Barely Banana. I stamped my Hedgehog/flower stamp in StazOn black, cut the hedgehog out, then stamped the flowers on my BG. I used Prisma Pencils and Gamsol to color the Hedgehog, fence and flowers, then sponged Green Galore for grass, added some texture with Watercolor Minis fern and stems stamps in Green Galore and dotted with Yellow Sun Marker for dandelions (hedgie needs to do some weeding). Hedgie is on dimensionals. Sponged around sentiment with Green Galore. Backed it all with DP, not sure what brand. I accented the flowers with Diamond Glaze to look like dew. Hope I didn't forget anything!
