Showers of Love

September 17, 2016

Hello everyone!
I'm Anna (al_handmade) and I have the huge honor of being a Guest Designer for this awesome creative team for the next few weeks. I’m thrilled!

Today I want to share with you a card that I made featuring the adorable “Cheerful Hedgehog” stamp set. I really love these little cuties - they’re so joyful and funny!! Don't you think?



I stamped the hedgehog on my card and colored it with Copic markers, adding a little background to the scene. As I want this card to be cheerful and colorful, I rainbow-colored the umbrella and attached it to the scene with some foam tape - in order to add some dimension.
I colored the hearts in different shades of pink/red, cut them off (with my scissors and a bit of patience) and glued them on my card, creating a sort of love waterfall. I wanted them to be sparkly and glossy so I used my Glossy Accents and my Wink of Stella Clear brush to make them shine.



Finally the sentiment: I stamped half of it directly on my card and half on a piece kraft paper.
As I wanted to add some relevance to the word “love”, I created a heart texture with Versamark Ink on kraft paper, heat-embossed the sentiment and added a few colored hearts on it.



I hope you enjoy this project. Thanks for joining me today!
See you next time!

Anna
