The Pink Elephant and Penny Black Challenges

Hello everyone;
What fabulous weather we are having in Southwestern Ontario. The sun is beaming and with all the rain we had this spring, the gardens are just beautiful. Sorry for my lack of blogging this week, DH is home from work for the next few weeks, recouping from his accident last Monday. He is doing well, won't be dancing any time soon, but things look good.

This weeks challenge at The Pink Elephant is a fabulous sketch so I thought I would combine it with the Penny Black Challenge which is "Embossing".

This adorable little Hedgie is from the Penny Black set "Tiny Wishes"

I stamped the image with black Versa fine and embossed it with clear EB powder. I painted it with Tombows. I used my white Inkssentials pen for the highlights, dots and doodles. I used my nesties for the circles. The sentiment is stamped with Stazon black onto shrink film and heated and shrunk. The flower centers are white liquid pearls and I also used some stickles.

I hope you like it.
I am slowly working my way
around to your blogs, I don't
want to miss any of your fab
creations....Thanks so much for
stopping by.
Have a great day...

Love the colors with this card. I still keep the one you sent me sitting where I can admire it while I'm creating. I've been in a slump lately with flash floods, no water and no electricity. That's enough to make a grown woman cry!!! hehehe I am thankful the water didn't get into any of my family's homes. I have learned that time goes on with or without us.
