Springtime Hedgie



Here's my favorite little PB critter and his little ladybug friend. The PennyBlack challenge theme this week was spring, so I pulled out my fav green, wild wasabi....I sooo stocked up on it before it retired! The DSP is from my scraps and the green leafy DP is from Creative Memories. Hedgie is colored with Koh-I-noor pencils and the ladybug is watercolored, glazed with crystal effects and popped! The retro flower is CB'd, layered & curled. The Secret Crafter challenge is stitching and the sketch is from the lovely Claudia at Friday Sketchers!

I had fun making this one so I hope it gives you a little smile! Blessings!
