Hambo Hoedown #28


Hedgehog digi-image
 Did you take advantage of Hambo's sale on retiring stamps and images?  I did--I love their images, they're just so darn cute!  I made a card for the Hambo Challenge Blog using Hedgehog digi-image and their challenge sketch.
I colored two images using Copics: C1,3; BG10; RV00,34;Y17; YR04 & RV34.  I glitzed his shaggy mane with yelloe, Orange and Magenta Sticklesw, and buffed up his nose with CTMH Liquid Glass. I used dimensional dots between the two image layers.  He's holding a handmade flower that my friend Anna made (thanks, hon) and I found the perfect quote to go with his pose--don't you think?
I took a little poetic license with the sketch, but it still follows the basic theme and shape of it.  I don't usually follow a sketch for my cards or layouts.  I just find a central focus of my project, work on the colors and patterns, and let my muse take me where I want to go (sometimes it veers off, though).
So what are you waiting for.  Every player who follows the rules of the challenge gets a free digi, and one random winner gets a prize!  Check out the Hoedown now!
