The Penny Black challenge this week is a sketch.
Here is my interpretation, and, as you can see, I turned the sketch around onto its side to make my card. I adore this little hedgie with his bouquet of flowers, and this image seemed very fitting for a birthday card. I coloured him with my Prisma pencils, using paper stumps and Sansodor to blend. The background papers are by K & Co, and the cardstock by DCWV, and I embossed the piece behind the image with a Cuttlebug folder to give a little texture to the card. The sentiment is by Hero Arts, and this was die-cut with Nestabilities on the Cuttlebug and then matted and layered with scraps of the paper and card used in the project. Lastly, I placed the little pearly flowers onto the card to accent.
