Penny Black Stamps

I have always covetted Penny Black stamps and especially lurrrrrve the wee hedgehogs (or hodgepigs as Naomi used to call them), so I finally gave in to temptation by ordering the 'Hugs' set of clear stamps.

Unfortunately, when they arrived I wasn't feeling up to playing with them but promised myself they would be first in line when I felt better.

Sooooo ... yesterday afternoon, I opened the seal and made a card using the wee mouse in a basket and the adorable hedgehog with flowers.

I used a combination of Whispers Brush Markers and Sakura Pens for colouring and then cut out the cute images to mount on silver mirri card with silicon glue.
I'm going to enjoy playing with this set and as a new owner of PB stamps I'm hoping my colouring skills can be improved so I don't spoil them because they're really fabby.

I love my penny blacks as you know, so it is no surprised when I say I LOVE this card.

The colouring looks fine Max, the shading you have created on there tummies is excellent.

If you do find that any colours are too dark in areas, I just pop a blog of water on the bit and pick the colour back up with kitchen towel
