This is my first time making a card for the weekly Penny Black Challenge. I had so much fun! I am also quite pleased with how this turned out. The challenge requires that you use at least one Penny Black stamp on your project and to depict something sweet. I do own many Hedgie stamps, but do you think I had just one with a cake, or cupcake, or anything sweet? Nope. I had to improvise and only ink the bottom portion of a stamp called Hedgehog Joy. It originally had flowers floating above it's head. I used a new set I just bought called Chocoholic from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps, added bon bons for the Hedgie to juggle. I also used a chocolate kiss border and flexed it into an arch to frame my image.
My designer paper is from the new Basic Grey collection called Sugar Rush. I cut out the image with my largest oval Nestabilities and sponged it softly with melon mambo ink from SU.
I used Copic markers to color my image and the colors were 0, C1, C3, E00, E31, E35, RV10, RV17, RV32, and W1. I accented with small heart brads, a tiny pink bow, and Sateen flowers that were tipped with RV17 and then blended.
